Consequent upon the withdrawal of resignation letters by the KMC chairperson and deputy chairperson on September 19, DC Kohima, Sachopra Vero has convened a meeting on September 22 at 10 a.m at the KMC conference hall for the trial of strength. KMC chairperson, Menuovilie Kesiezie and deputy chairperson, Thejangulie had tendered their resignation on September 4 after 11 councilors moved a no confidence motion against them on August 25 claiming that the former two no longer enjoyed the support of majority. On September 5, the 11 councilors submitted a letter to the DC Kohima to unanimously appoint Vipopal Kintso as the chairperson and Khriehu Liezietsu as the deputy chairperson. Noting that the ‘no confidence motion’ signed by the 11 councillors has not been withdrawn, DC Kohima has fixed Monday for the trial of strength. All the elected members and ex-officio members have been informed to attend the meeting positively. When contacted front runner for the top post, Vipopal Kintso claimed that the 11 councilors who had moved the no-confidence motion were intact and united. “We are confident of winning the motion on Monday” he said. It may be mentioned that there were 19 elected councilors in KMC and six ex-offico members, who have the voting rights, totaling to 25. However, due to sudden demise of a KMC Councilor Keduosanyu on August 26, the elected councilors now stand at 18 members. A simple majority is required when the voting takes place. The ex-officio- members include NPF president and urban development higher education minister Dr, Shurhozelie; Speaker NLA Kiyanilie Peseyie; MLAs Er. Vikho; Dr. Nicky Kire and two MPs – Lok Sabha MP, W. Wangyuh Konyak and Rajya Sabha MP, H. Khekiho Zhimomi.
