Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy was elected to the Puducherry assembly, winning the Nellithope seat by 11,144 seats.
Narayanasamy trounced his nearest AIADMK rival by 11,144 votes by securing 18,709 votes.
The by-election was held on Saturday following the resignation of Congress member John Kumar so that Narayanasamy could contest and continue as the Chief Minister.
Narayanasamy did not contest the assembly polls of May 2016. However, the Congress chose him as the Chief Minister.
Under law, a minister who is a non-member of an assembly has to get elected to the house within six months after assuming office.
Union Territory of Puducherry will have DMK-Congress led government in the 30-member Assembly. The All India NR Congress (AINRC) headed by incumbent Chief Minister and former Congressman N Rangaswamy is trailing. Initial trends indicate the DMK-Congress combine may get 14 seats, while nine going to the AINRC and five to the AIADMK.
