The election date for Nadigar Sangam was announced on Tuesday evening. The election is set to take place from 7.00 am to 5.00 pm on June 23 at Dr. MGR Janaki College for Arts and Science. The appointment of Padmanabhan came after an Emergency Executive Council meeting held earlier this month in Chennai.
Elections will be held for the post of President, currently held by Nasser, Vice Presidents held by Ponvannan and Karunas, General Secretary held by Vishal, Treasurer post held by Karthi and the 24-member Executive Committee. Some of the existing Executive Committee members include Kutty Padmini, Kovai Sarala, Nanda, Prasanna, Sriman, Sangeetha, Pasupathy, Nalini and Nirosha.
It was earlier announced that Nasser would be contesting once again for the post of President in this election along with his same team members Karthi and Vishal. While applications are currently open, the list of contestants will be announced on June 14. Actor Udhaya, who is currently a part of the EC, announced that he would contest against Vishal for the post of General Secretary since he found the latter’s performance unsatisfactory.
