The trends in counting manifest that the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) alliance is in the lead in the state of Tamil Nadu. The party, along with its alliances is ahead in 142 seats, while the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) is up in at least 91 seats. Moreover, a party needs around 118 seats to win the elections from the 234 assembly seats.
Moreover, the ruling party AIADMK, which has been in power for almost 10 years since 2011, prolongs to hold its power in the state. Apart from the DMK-led Secular Progressive Alliance and AIADMK-led National Democratic Alliance, which retain the majority of the voter base, this election also included Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) by Kamal Hassan and Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) by TTV Dhinakaran. However, it is a clean sweep win for DMK.
Even though the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) is leading with an edge in Tamil Nadu Assembly Election, the National Democratic Alliance has been leading in Puducherry and may form a government there. Furthermore, NDA bags up to 14 seats out of 30 in Puducherry, while DMK-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) bags 140 seats in Tamil Nadu.
