The last date for filing nominations is December 4 and withdrawal of candidature is on December 7.
The vacancy for the constituency arose following the death of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on December 5 previous year. Initially, the bye-election to the constituency was scheduled to take place on April 12 but was cancelled by the Election Commission on April 9, over allegations of corruption and bribery of voters. The counting will be held on December 24.
In April, when the AIADMK was divided into two - one led by Panneerselvam and the other by jailed leader V K Sasikala and her nephew T T V Dinakaran -, the former faction fielded E Madhusudhanan and the later Dinakaran.
J Deepa, niece of Jayalalithaa too, jumped into the electoral fray last time forming MGR Amma Deepa Forum.

Iranian national charged for HBO hack

With the three-way split in the Jayalalithaa's legacy, an interesting contest is on the card in RK Nagar, which is traditionally won by the ruling party in Tamil Nadu.
The AIADMK, which had fielded its Presidium Chairman E. Madhusudanan, is yet to announce its candidate, while the BJP said it would decide whether to contest or not in the changed circumstances in consultation with the high command.
The previously announced by-election in RK Nagar had been cancelled on April 10 after reports of widespread cash distribution.
When asked whether he thought the byelection would be held in a free and fair manner, Mr. Stalin, noting that the DMK had approached the court in the recent past, said, "Now, we will face it [the byelection] in a democratic manner, and the DMK will win it with the support of its allies".
He declined to comment on the party's probable candidate to fight the by-election. The matter relates to a DMK petition that an AIADMK MLA had obtained it when she was in an unconscious state.
