Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami won a test of strength today in an assembly where close to 100 opposition lawmakers were missing after violence and chaos over a demand for secret voting. Mr Palaniswami, handpicked by jailed AIADMK chief VK Sasikala, won 122 votes; only 11 votes were cast against him by the O Panneerselvam camp. Mr Palaniswami had 15 days to prove his majority but had opted to convene the special assembly session in a hurry to ensure that his support did not dwindle.
