EC recognises EPS-OPS faction as real AIADMK

"We'll go to Supreme Court and retrieve the symbol", he said.

He added that "The Election Commission has given a just decision". The two factions also started sidelining the AIADMK group led by Sasikala and her nephew Dinakaran.

On allegations that the judgement was awarded in their favour due to proximity with BJP, Palaniswami said, "Our side had more supporters and legislators". EC was determined to freeze the two leaves symbol.

Captain Marvel: Jude Law Lands Lead Role
The character that Law will not be the villain of the piece as Ben Mendelsohn has already been signed up for that role. He is also still attached to star in a third " Sherlock Holmes " film, which Warner Bros.is now developing.

The EC stated that it had recognised the Palaniswami-Panneerselvam faction as the real AIADMK and granted it the symbol as it had been found to be enjoying the support of a majority of members, both in the organisational and legislature wings of the party. "Majority of party workers supported us", Palaniswami was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

The petitioners also wanted that the Sasikala faction not be allowed to use the AIADMK name and symbol for the by-elections to RK Nagar Assembly constituency in Chennai until the case was dismissed.

Celebrations started in the EPS-OPS camp on Thursday, November 23 after E Palaniswami told reporters that the Election Commission of India (EC) has finally allotted the two leaves symbol to his faction. The leaders had contended that Sasikala's appointment as the party general secretary was in gross violation of the provisions of the AIADMK constitution, as she did not fulfill the requirement of continuous membership of the party for five years.

A proposed dividend of 40.9p is due to be paid in March 2018, in line with the group's 50% pay-out ratio, it confirmed. In July, McCall announced she would leave easyJet to take up the role of chief executive at ITV .

The other faction led by TTV Dinakaran, Sasikala's nephew, had also laid claim over the symbol after a power tussle ensued in the party following the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in December previous year.

Dinakaran said that he will contest the R.K. Nagar bypoll and after winning, he will retrieve the party symbol. In the following months, forced by political compulsions and in a bid to salvage the party symbol, both the factions made a decision to patch up by sidelining VK Sasikala and her nephew TTV Dinakaran.

Palaniswami was with Sasikala and Dinakaran then and replaced Panneerselvam as the chief minister after Sasikala's ascent to the helm of the party.
