Actor Vishal meets CEO over nomination

Actor Vishal on Wednesday gives his petition to Chief Electoral Officer Rajesh Lakhoni at the secretariat after his nomination papers were rejected

The actor also sought to raise the matter with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ramnath Kovind's office through the twitter handle.

In his tweet, the actor said: "To the people, I look upto, Hon @narendramodi & Hon @rashtrapatibhvn I am Vishal, I hope u r aware of wats happening in the RK Nagar Election process in Chennai".

On Tuesday, the RO's office saw a dramatic situation when RO K Velusamy rejected Vishal's nomination, prompting the actor to stage a dharna. He wrote, "After much struggle, my nomination for the RK Nagar election is finally accepted".

In his tweet on Thursday, Vishal, as he is popularly known, said: "Still awaiting Democracy to lift its head up again..." Mr. Lakhoni, after perusing the petition and listening to the actor's version of events, assured him that he would do his best.The CEO also held a meeting with the RO amidst speculation that the latter might be replaced on Thursday. After the EC's directive, Vishal had tweeted: "Just received info thru media that I have to produce the 2 people who supposedly alleged that their signature in my nomination for RK Nagar Election has been forged, in front of the Election Commission before 3 PM today. Less than 2 hours to do this..."

Late wins show what we are, says Guardiola
David Moyes is still to register a win in four matches since taking over as manager of West Ham, which is in next-to-last place. Since Guardiola's taken charge of the side their relationship has been on and off.

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.
