Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) chairperson Menuovilie Kesiezie and deputy chairperson Thejangulie were “voted out of their chairs” Monday after a no-confidence motion was moved against the duo earlier by eleven KMC members. DC Kohima Sachopra Vero has convened another meeting Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the KMC hall for election of a new chairperson and deputy chairperson. The crucial trial of strength was conducted at KMC conference hall in presence of the DC and ADC Zeneituo Yano, who is also the CEO of KMC. All eleven members present in Monday’s meeting chaired by DC Kohima raised their hands in favour of the no-confidence motion moved by former KMC chairperson Vipopal Kintso. “Since all voted in favour of the motion, according to the Municipal Act the outgoing chairman and deputy chairperson are now deemed to have vacated the office,” the DC announced after the vote. Of the eleven members who attended the meeting, nine were from the NPF (Vipopal Kintso, Khriehu Liezietsu, Keduolhoulie Houzha, Neilaselie Kire, Sakhol Tsukru, Vilar Rutsa, Neiphrelie Rutsa, Neivor Rutsa and Kevikhrietuo Mepfu-o) and one each from the Congress (Neitsu Kuotsu) and BJP (Vizopal Chaya). Remaining seven KMC members as well as the six ex-officio members did not attend the meeting. During the meeting, some of the members requested the DC to immediately convene a meeting for electing the chairman and deputy chairperson as they alleged that the rival group was contacting them till Monday morning. They said such contacts were “directly or indirectly encouraging horse trading.” The DC assured the members that a meeting would be convened at the earliest for election of a new chairperson and deputy chairperson. It may be mentioned on August 25 last, eleven KMC members moved a no-confidence motion against the chairperson and deputy chairperson claiming that the duo no longer enjoyed the support of majority.
