By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Sep 15: With no other candidate joining the contest, MLA K Leishiyo is poised to be declared as the new Chairman of Manipur Legislative Assembly Hill Areas Committee (HAC).
Even though K Leishiyo filed his nomination paper for the post of HAC Chairman as a consensus candidate of the ruling parties, no MLA from the camp of the Opposition Congress filed nomination papers for the post.
The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) held a meeting this morning and decided not to field any candidate for the post of HAC Chairman.
As no other candidate has filed nomination papers, K Leishiyo would be declared elected to the post of HAC Chairman tomorrow.
Notably, out of the 20 MLAs elected from the hill districts, four have already resigned.
Out of the remaining 16 MLAs, nine belong to the ruling parties while seven are Congress legislators.
