Speaker Sharingain Longkümer rejects petition towards 7 Naga People’s Front MLAs – The Opinion

GUWAHATI: Speaker of the Nagaland legislative meeting, Sharingain Longkümer, on Tuesday dismissed the disqualification petition towards seven Naga People’s Front MLAs.

NPF had petitioned the Speaker in April searching for disqualification of the seven MLAs for “willfully defying the party’s collective decision to support Congress in the last Parliamentary Election to the lone Nagaland Parliamentary constituency”.

“…It is established beyond any reasonable doubt that there is no sufficient ground for presuming that the respondents had voluntarily given up the membership of the original political party, NPF,” stated Longkumer’s order.

“I decide that the respondents are not liable to be disqualified under para 1(1) (a) of the Tenth Schedule, Accordingly, I hereby dismiss the petition filed by Chotisuh Sazo, MLA and Imkong L Imchen seeking disqualification.”
