Empowering ordinary party members again, to elect the top leadership were among the changes made, apparently aimed at aiding the current AIADMK leadership in more ways than one.

The changes, effected in the Executive Committee meet held at the party headquarters here on Wednesday are expected to help the leadership in important legal matters.
