The AIADMK party's 'historic' general council and executive committee meeting today will elect Palaniswami as the single, supreme party leader, with bete noire O. Panneerselvam now clearly relegated to the background.

While the Madras High Court is set to pronounce its verdict today morning on a plea against conducting the meeting, all arrangements are in place to hold the meet.

Since last month, the AIADMK has been witnessing serious intra-party wrangling over the issue of single-leadership and Palaniswami has the support of an overwhelming majority and Panneerselvam has been sidelined in the party.

It is expected that the AIADMK may soon act against Panneerselvam.

The Madras High Court said on Friday that it would pass order on July 11, by 9am, on a plea against holding the General Council meeting.

The meet was originally scheduled to be held on July 11 and it was slated to commence in the morning, that day. Now the fate of the meeting hinges on the court verdict.

Panneerselvam is against the meeting and Palaniswami, who is expected to be elected the supreme leader in the GC meeting, is for it.

The party was split almost vertically, with EPS and OPS on either sides. AIADMK senior leader K.P. Munusamy on Saturday alleged that party treasurer O. Panneerselvam sided with the ruling DMK and asserted that it is not possible to have ties with him.

Panneerselvam is siding with the DMK regime and when he lauds the ruling party, it would lead to separation, Munusamy told reporters.
