DMK set to form a coalition government!
This is the open thread for the election results. We will be blogging live through the day, as results keep coming in.
Please post your comments/opinions/any updates/Links/results in the comments section. I will keep updating this post frequently with the latest results. The times are in Indian Standard Time.
