On Saturday, Zeliang inducted 10 cabinet ministers amid high political drama.

Governor P B Acharya administered the oath of office and secrecy to E E Pangteang from NPF in the presence of Zeliang, Assembly Speaker Imtiwapang Aier, senior bureaucrats and others at the Durbar Hall of Raj Bhavan in Nagaland.

Beside the Chief Minister, there was 11 other ministers. They are G Kaito Aye, Imkong L Imchen, Tokheho Yepthomi, Y Patton, Kipili Sangtam, Neikiesalie Nicky Kire, Kejong Chang, Neiba Kronu, E E Pangteang, Imtilemba Sangtam and Mmhonlumo Kikon.

Nine of the ministers are from Naga People's Front (NPF) and two are from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Zeliang was sworn in as the Chief Minister on 19 July after the Nagaland governor sacked Shurhozelie Liezietsu, who failed to turn up for the vote of confidence.
Zeliang had won the trust vote in the Assembly on 21 July and had expanded his ministry by inducting 10 ministers on 22 July.

Meantime, parliamentary secretaries who will look after various government departments will be appointed next week.
