Chennai: DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Friday announced that his party would boycott the Sep 19 local body elections in Tamil Nadu.

In a statement issued here, Karunanidhi said the state election commission made the poll announcement Aug 28 and also said nominations could be filed on the same day.
