M Karunanidhi’s Son MK Stalin Elected DMK Working President

MK Stalin, DMK treasurer and son of M Karunanidhi, was elected the party’s ‘working president’, a post that was created for him in view of his father’s failing health. Stalin’s nomination to the post came at the general council meeting of the party earlier Wednesday and makes it clear that he is the successor to his father. The Hindu reported that party bylaws have been amended to make Stalin the ‘working president’.
