Jayalalithaa releases candidate list

An appeals court acquitted the powerful politician in southern India of corruption charges earlier this month, clearing the way for her to return to public office. She was forced last year to step down as the highest elected official in Tamil Nadu after a Bangalore court in September convicted her of possessing wealth disproportionate to her income and sentenced her to four years in prison.

On Monday, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa and AIADMK general secretary announced that she will seek re-election from the Radhakrishnan Nagar constituency.

The AIADMK will contest in 227 of the 234 assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu. It has allotted seven constituencies to its alliance partners.

In Puducherry, the AIADMK will contest in all the 30 seats and in Kerala it will put up 7 candidates.
