Meghalaya chief minister, Conrad Sangma, who is also the national chief of the National People’s Party (NPP), is contesting the by-election and hopeful to win the South Tura assembly seat in order to retain his chief ministership.

Agatha Sangma resigned as member from South Tura Assembly seat to pave way for her brother Conrad to contest the by-election.

Conrad is pitted against Congress candidate Charlotte W. Momin, John Leslee K. Sangma and Kris Kabul A. Sangma who are contesting as Independents.

The Ranikor assembly seat fell vacant after former PWD minister and five-time Congress legislator from Ranikor constituency, Martin Dango resigned as member of the State Assembly and joined the ruling NPP.

Danggo will face Congress’ Jacquish A. Sangma, UDP’s Pius Marwein and PDF’s P.N. Syiem.
