Meghalaya election throws up hung Assembly as Congress falls short of majority mark: Complete winners' list

While the Congress put up a dismal show in Tripura and Nagaland, it fared relatively better in Meghalaya, where it won 21 seats. However, it still could not reach the majority mark in the 60-seat Assembly, which means that the state is headed to a hung Assembly.

The National People's Party (NPP) was at the second position with 19 seats, according to the results.

The BJP, which contested 47 seats, could win only two. Independent candidates won three seats.

Polling for 59 Assembly seats, out of a total of 60, was held on 27 February. In one seat, polls were countermanded as a Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) candidate was killed in an IED blast.

To form the government in Meghalaya, a party or coalition requires a minimum of 30 seats.

Calling the result as not on the expected lines, Mukul Sangma said that he would keep his cards close to his chest with regard to the Congress forming government in the state — while NPP chief Conrad Sangma said that he is hopeful of forming the government. "People are fed up with the corrupt Congress government and are looking for a change", Sangma added.
