"This General Council unanimously resolves and gives full powers to party founder president Vijayakanth to take an appropriate decision in regard to the DMDK's electoral stance for the upcoming Assembly election," a resolution adopted at the party's General and Executive Council meetings here said.

It said the DMDK has emerged as a "massive political movement" by the people of Tamil Nadu. "All sections of people are expecting the kind of stance our party is going to take for the Assembly elections," it added.

Twenty-two other resolutions were adopted at the meet and several of them strongly criticised the AIADMK government and vowed to unseat the ruling regime from the saddle of power.

Recently, Vijayakanth had told reporters here that he would announce his party's decision over the question of striking an alliance for the coming polls after the party's general and executive council meetings and a party conference.

Besides the DMK and BJP, the People's Welfare Front, comprising MDMK, CPI(M), CPI and the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, has been persuading the DMDK to join its front.
