Initially, Tamil Nadu's ruling AIADMK and the two communist parties had announced that they would fight the elections as allies, but the alliance broke as AIADMK refused to share more than one seat each to the left parties while announcing its list of candidates for all the 40 seats (39 in Tamil Nadu and one in Puducherry).
