CHENNAI: Sasikala loyalist Edappadi K Palaniswami is all set to be the new Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu with the Governor Thursday inviting him to form government at the "earliest".

Ending the 10-day impasse over government formation, Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao asked Palaniswami, the AIADMK Legislature Party Leader, to form his ministry at the earliest and seek a vote of confidence in the assembly within 15 days.

"The Governor has today appointed Edappadi K Palaniwami, Party Headquarters Secretary of AIADMK as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and invited him to form the ministry at the earliest," a Raj Bhavan release said.

The Governor's invitation came "in acceptance" of the letter submitted by Palaniswami on February 14, saying he had been elected as the Leader of the AIADMK Legislature party in a meeting of its MLAs that day.

Earlier in the day, the Governor had met Palaniswami, the third meeting between the two since February 14 when AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala was convicted by the Supreme Court in an assets case, dealing a body blow to her ambition of becoming chief minister.

She was earlier elected AIADMK Legislature party leader on February 5, but a revolt by the O Panneerselvam came as a spanner in her works.
