SC Jamir loses Aonglenden bypoll

Former Nagaland Chief Minister and senior Congress leader SC Jamir lost the Aonglenden Assembly bypoll to ruling Naga People`s Front (NPF) candidate Toshikopba Longkumer by over 1,300 votes.



Kohima: Former Nagaland Chief Minister
and senior Congress leader S C Jamir on Friday lost the Aonglenden
Assembly bypoll to ruling Naga People`s Front (NPF) candidate
Toshikopba Longkumer by over 1,300 votes.

Jamir, the longest serving chief minister of Nagaland,
had won from the Aonglenden seat in Mokokchong district a
number of times in the past. He was staying away from the
state for nearly a decade due to gubernatorial assignments in
Goa and Maharashtra.

Bypoll for the Aonglenden seat was held on May 7 which
saw a high voter turnout of about 88 per cent.

The by-poll was necessitated following the death of
Congress MLA Nungshizenba Longkumer last year.
