The AIADMK’s dominant Edappadi Ok Palaniswami (EPS) faction on Friday asserted that the system of twin management, that vested powers on Coordinator O Panneerselvam (OPS) and Joint Coordinator EPS ceased to be in power, a day after the Basic Council stood agency on the only management demand.
Amendments, associated to prime two get together posts, made to get together by-laws on December 1, 2021 weren’t ratified by the Basic Council which met on June 23, 2022, senior chief and EPS loyalist, C V Shanmugam mentioned.
Final yr, by-laws had been tweaked to retain and additional strengthen the twin system of management, favouring OPS and EPS. After the by-laws had been amended, OPS and EPS had been declared elected unopposed as Coordinator and Co-Coordinator.
Such amendments made it necessary that the nominees to the 2 prime posts of Coordinator and Joint Coordinator needs to be elected by the get together’s main members via a single vote, Shanmugam informed reporters.
Nonetheless, since these amendments associated to the highest two get together posts weren’t recognised and endorsed by the Basic Council on Thursday, these prime two positions have now turn out to be defunct, he mentioned. Therefore, OPS is not the Coordinator and EPS ceases to be the Joint-Coordinator.
The duo proceed to carry on to their different posts of Treasurer (OPS) and Headquarters Secretary (EPS) solely, Shanmugam, a former Legislation Minister mentioned extensively quoting from the get together’s rule e book.
The assertion makes it clear that the EPS faction is decided to maneuver ahead and make EPS the supreme chief on July 11, when the Basic Council is scheduled to satisfy once more.
