Former Executive Member (EM) of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) and Member of Autonomous Council (MAC) Longki Timung filed his nomination papers for post of Chairman of KAAC, here on Tuesday, before the Deputy Secretary, KAAC, Legislative, Birsing Engti.
The post of KAAC Chairman fell vacant after MAC Horensing Bey resigned from the post on June 3 citing personal issues. MAC Timung was the only candidate and will be elected unopposed the result of which will be declared on Wednesday on the floor of the House.
CEM, KAAC, Tuliram Ronghang along with EMs and MACs accompanied Timung to file his nomination papers.
MAC Horen Sing Bey resigned as the Chairman of KAAC after he got the green signal that he would be made an EM of the Council along with MACs Mangal Sing Timung and Lunsing Teron. There is more than a month’s delay due to reported cold vibes between the CEM and HAD Minister Sum Ronghang over making Lunsing Teron an EM who the later favours.
However, with the filing of nomination for the post of the Chairman of KAAC by MAC Timung it is seen that the process of making political adjustment is underway as Timung’s feather were ruffled with his sidelining by not taking him in the Executive Committee of KAAC. Inducting the three, i.e., Horen Sing Bey, Mangal Sing Timung and Lunsing Teron into the Executive Committee will be sooner than later as the Lok Sabha election is approaching. Horen Sing Bey and Lunsing Teron are new faces whereas Mangal Sing Timung has been an EM during the Congress ruled KAAC.
