The date and timing of the ceremeony, likely in Raj Bhavan would be simple and it shall be announced Monday night or on Tuesday, he told reporters.

The DMK’s work would make people who voted for the combine led by it happy and also shall make others who did not favour it to ponder as to why ”we did not vote for the DMK and its allies,” he said.

Stalin vowed to take immediate efforts to implement his party’s electoral promises in a phased manner and also the DMK’s 10-year vision document.

On when he would assume office as Chief Minister, Stalin said there were several constituencies where the candidates who emerged victorious have not received their certificates of election and this process was expected to be completed tonight or on Monday.
