North Korea's latest missile test raises safety concerns for civilian flights
North Korea launched an ICBM last week that was witnessed by a passenger plane's flight crew. The chances are "billions to one", aviation safety analyst David Soucie told CNN.

He said the rejection of his nomination was pre-planned and the two proposers (Sumathi and Deepan) were threatened. Vishal has claimed that K. Sumathi and Deepan had backtracked under pressure from the ruling party and he was anxious about their safety. "What more is to Come?!"

The veracity of an audio clip submitted by Vishal that Sumathy appeared before the RO on "coercion" by some persons and not on her own volition could not be ascertained, the election official said. The authenticity of this video was doubted by returning officer Velusamy, who then rejected it.

The candidates who wish to withdraw their nominations can do so by 7 December The counting of votes is scheduled for 24 December. Since Vishal has failed to convince the RO and the election committee has also not interfered, he has lost his chance to contest in the upcoming elections.
