In the 23 postal ballot, Dr Liezietsu got 12, Yhome 10 and 1 was rejected.

The bye-election was necessitated following the resignation of sitting MLA Khriehu Liezietsu on 24 May, so that his father Shurhozelie Liezietsu could get elected as a member of the state Assembly.

Liezietsu had become the chief minister in February 2017 replacing NPF colleague TR Zeliang, who again ousted him in a rebellion on 19 July.
