While the SDF got 15 seats in the hill state, Sikkim Krantikari Morcha, which was formed in 2013, bagged 17 seats, one more than required for a majority in the 32-member Assembly.

Chamling, however, was elected from two assembly constituencies in the state assembly elections, Election Commission officials said. He had contested the elections from Namchi Singhithang and Poklok Kamrang seats , they said.
