The ruling AIADMK party (seat sharing with MDMK), is pitted against a formidable alliance of the DMK, minus MDMK. This is 34.65% against 57% vote bank, based on the last election in 2004. There is always 10 to 12.5% people in the undecided category, voting for the anti-incumbency!

All parties are trying to make the best, well educated, mannered and the best possible winnable candidates presented to people. All are willing to work for the people, giving away their efforts and hard earned cash!
