TURA, Nov 26 - The stage is set for voting to the no-confidence motion, moved by the Congress on Monday, in the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC), as the last order of business tomorrow.
Prior to the trust vote, election to the post of deputy chairman of the GHADC will be held as the incumbent, Mettrinson Momin, resigned following an attempt by the NPP to impeach him.
Momin had continued as the deputy chairman despite joining the Opposition Congress when the first NPP executive committee in the GHADC was toppled by a coalition led by the Congress. He stepped down when the NPP decided to impeach him for siding with the Congress.
The election will now be held tomorrow between NPP representative Augustine Marak and Congress candidate Momin.
On Monday, 10 MDCs in the Opposition camp had signed the no-confidence motion against the Dipul Marak-led executive committee. It will be taken up on Wednesday.
Among the ten signatories to the no-confidence motion were Mettrinson Momin along with two recently removed executive members, Rightious Sangma and Jogonsing Sangma.
According to GHADC chairman, Denang T Sangma, the no-confidence motion will be the last order of business on Wednesday. He said that the council would first seek passage of the supplementary budget, to be followed by election to the post of deputy chairman.
