Repolling in Konarchar polling booth in the by-poll to Meghalaya’s Selsella Assembly constituency went off peacefully on Monday, an election official said. The re-poll was necessitated as the electorate of this polling booth cast their votes in the EVM meant for the Tura Lok Sabha seat poll instead of Assembly by-poll during polling on April 11.

Chief Electoral Officer Frederick Roy Kharkongor said the poll percentage for the Lok Sabha was recorded at 93.40 per cent while 93.12 percent for the by-election. Konarchar polling station has a total of 712 voters. Selsella constituency is part of the Tura parliamentary seat in the Garo Hills area in western Meghalaya. The by-election was necessitated by the death of sitting Congress legislator Clement Marak on October 8, 2018. Marak’s widow June Eliana R. Marak is contesting the bypoll on the Congress ticket against the ruling National People’s Party Ferlin C.A. Sangma, the United Democratic Party’s Sayeedullah Nongrum and the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Adorsho Sangma.
