KOHIMA — All eyes are on the result of the Nagaland’s lone Lok Sabha seat, which is scheduled to be declared on June 4, after the vote counting process along with the rest of the country.

The fate of three candidates – Dr. Chumben Murry of Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), S Supongmeren Jamir of Indian National Congress (INC) and Hayithung Tungoe Lotha (Independent) – who contested the state’s lone Parliamentary seat, will be decided by the end of the day.

The counting of votes will begin at 8 am in all the 17 counting centres (postal ballot counting centre) at the office of returning officers across the state.

The Election Commission has informed that counting for postal ballot would begin first across the country, which will be followed by EVMs half an hour later.

The ECI further informed that trends and results, as per data entered by RO/ARO for AC/PC, will be available on the ECI website as well as on the Voter Helpline App on both iOS and Android version.

The state went to the polls in the first of the seven-phase elections held between April 19 and June 1, recording a voter turnout of 57%, even as six eastern districts — Mon, Tuensang, Kiphire, Longleng, Noklak and Shamator – abstained from voting to protest the failure of the central government in creating a Frontier Nagaland Territory.
