Kohima: Former Nagaland chief minister and ruling Naga People’s Front (NPF) nominee Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu on Thursday won the bye-election to 10 Northern Angami-I Assembly constituency defeating his independent rival by 3470 votes.
While Dr Liezietsu polled 8026, his only rival independent opponent Kekhrie Yhome got 4558 votes.
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.
