Radhika has not filed for the president’s post in the upcoming election, but has gone ahead and filed nomination for the secretary’s post. Panju Arunachalam has filed nomination for the President’s post opposite Rama Narayanan. S A Chandrasekaran, A M Rathnam, Kameela Nazar and Radhakrishnan have filed nomination for the administrative council members.
Elections to the Producers’ council falls on the 6th of next month. Keyaar said Panchu Aruchalam is highly respected in the film industry and is a good administrator too and hence he has been selected for contesting against Rama Narayanan, the incumbent president of the council. The judge permitted the Election Officer and his assistants to take police help during the elections and during the counting of votes and also videograph the polling and counting of votes.
The court’s intervention was sought by the Keyaar group on the grounds that the elections would not be free and fair unless A.V.M. Murugan was replaced as election officer. Rama Narayanan, president, Tamil Film Producers Council, has the backing of Kalaignar TV and political outfits such as DMK, VCK and PMK.
