Edappadi Palaniswami to be sworn in as CM, can he prove majority?

Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao is still maintaining his silence over who the next Chief Minister will be. Meanwhile, speculations are rife that Rao will call for a floor test. 

On Wednesday night, the Governor had met both factions of AIADMK, one headed by the caretaker CM O Paneerselvam, and the other by the man chosen by Sasikala, Edappadi Palanisamy.

Although the faction headed by Edappadi Palanisamy has a clear advantage in terms of numbers, the Governor did not call for a floor test even after Sasikala surrendered in a special court in Bengaluru’s Parappana Agrahara jail premises after the Supreme Court restored her four-year sentence in the DA case.

Meanwhile, the OPS camp which has 11 MLAs including OPS, maintains that more legislators would join them if the representatives were given a choice, and continue to allege that the MLAs in Golden Bay resort in Koovathur are kept there against their will.
