Actor-turned-politician Kamal Hassan of Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party is leading against BJP's Vanathi Srinivasan and Congress' Mayura S Jayakumar in Coimbatore South Assembly seat as per early postal ballot trends, reports Money Control.

The counting of votes for the 234-member Legislative Assembly in Tamil Nadu began at 8 am on Sunday amidst strict Covid protocols in 75 centres across the state. A party would require at least 118 seats to win the election. The E Palaniswami-led AIADMK, who has allied with BJP, seeks to retain power for the third time in a row but faces a stiff challenge from M K Stalin-led DMK.

The exit polls had predicted a big victory for the DMK and projected M K Stalin to become the next Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
