Nagaland receives no instruction from EC

KOHIMA: Nagaland state election authority has not received any instruction from the Election Commission 24 hours after all major political parties agreed not to contest the upcoming assembly polls slated for February 27 alleging the Centre's failure to resolve the main political problem.

According to state election department sources, the authority was aware of the decision and they passed the message to the Election Commission. "But so far we have not received any information from ECI. We are doing our duty. This is for ECI and the Centre to decide. We have limitations," said a senior official in Kohima.

Many political functionaries in Kohima caller state chief election officer Abhijeet Sinha on Tuesday who said that they won't halt the process until they receive any instruction from the country's poll panel which announced the poll scheduled two weeks back.

All major political parties on Monday signed a joint statement prepared by the civil society organizations not to contest the polls without a complete solution of the vexed decade old problem.
