Imphal: Sanasam Umananda was elected president of the oldest regional party, Manipur People`s Party (MPP), at the party`s central committee meeting, a party spokesman said on Tuesday.
Umananda`s election followed the resignation of former president Nimaichand Luwang who owned moral responsibility for the party`s defeat in the last Manipur assembly elections in January.
MPP which had ruled the state two times failed to get a single seat in the 60-member state assembly.
