OPS could still try to win it back, but it will be a tough one. OPS needs eight more MLAs to bring down Palaniswami's newly-formed government. EPS has 124 MLAs, if OPS can coax 8 out of them to defect, the count goes down to 116, which is one less than the majority 117. MLA's leave Koovathoor Golden Bay resort to the secretariat.
There will be a floor test at 11AM in the state legislature. While the opposing DMK and Congress told media that they would vote againts Edappadi Palaniswami.
