Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) President MK Stalin seals seat-sharing alliance with communist parties CPI and CPI-M for Lok Sabha elections; gives two seats each to the two parties.

The MK Stalin-led DMK, which leads the multi-party Secular Progressive Alliance (SPA) in the state, had earlier shared one seat each with its allies IUML and Kongunadu Makkal Desiya Katchi (KMDK) for the upcoming polls.

The two Left parties had got the same share of two seats each to contest in the 2019 elections, and won them. While the CPI(M) represents Madurai and Coimbatore, CPI has MPs in Tiruppur and Nagapattinam (SC).

The DMK-led combine, which includes the Congress, swept the Lok Sabha polls in the state in 2019, winning 38 of the 39 seats, besides clinching the lone Puducherry union territory segment.
