Chennai, Nov 21

The Madras High Court on Tuesday directed the Election Commission to hold the by-election to the Radhakrishnan Nagar Assembly constituency here by December 31.

The court declined to modify its earlier direction to the poll body.

The seat fell vacant following the death of Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016.

Though the by-election was scheduled for April 12, 2017, it was countermanded following reports of attempted voter bribing by a candidate.
