NEW DELHI: Chief Election Commissioner N. Gopalaswami said on Wednesday that the Commission would act on the Madras High Court directive to initiate action against the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa, for filing false declarations while contesting from four Assembly constituencies in 2001.

To a question whether the Commission would take action, he said: "If the High Court has said that action should be taken within a specified period, we will do that."
