Conrad hopes his party will win Ampati by-poll

By The Assam Tribune

SHILLONG, May 9 - Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has said his party, the NPP, will win the Ampati Assembly seat in the upcoming by-election, as the party�s recent victory in Williamnagar will have an effect on it.

National People�s Party (NPP) candidate Marcuis Marak won the Williamnagar seat by a margin of nearly 5,000 votes in the by-election held on April 27. The result was declared on May 1.

�That will definitely have an impact in the Ampati by-election scheduled to be held on May 28,� Conrad K Sangma, who is also the NPP chief, told mediapersons here on Monday.

Polling for the Williamnagar seat was postponed following the death of NCP candidate Jonathone N Sangma in an IED attack on February 18, days before the February 27 Assembly elections in the State.

�People wanted a change, the change has come and we want to take it to the next level,� he said.

The Congress was in power in Meghalaya since 2003 and Conrad Sangma�s NPP won 19 seats in the recently held Assembly polls and cobbled up a coalition government in the State with the support of other regional parties, BJP and an Independent MLA.

The NPP chief also said that the party is likely to field Clement G Momin from the Assembly constituency.

The Ampati Assembly constituency was left vacant after the former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma contested and won from two seats � Ampati and Songsak in the February 27 elections. He later resigned from Ampati. � PTI
