Dimapur, Jan. 26 (EMN): Despite the recent resolution of the Naga People’s Front (NPF) endorsing the decision of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly ‘for solution’ to the Indo-Naga political issue before the assembly elections, the party’s president seems already busy with electioneering process.
On Fri., the declaration of candidatures and election campaign of Khriehu Liezietsu to contest from the Northern Angami-1 assembly constituency was held in Kohima, according to a printed schedule of the day’s programme and photographs that were circulated in the social media.
This also indicates that the senior Liezietsu will probably not contest the next elections as traditionally he had always contested from the constituency and represented it nine times.
Khriehu Liezietsu is the son of the former chief minister, Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu, also the current president of the NPF. The junior Liezietsu had to vacate his seat previously so that his father would continue as the state’s chief minister.
