Meghalaya Elections: Only MLA From NCP Joins Congress

The practice of MLAs changing parties prior to the Meghalaya Assembly Elections has gained traction. Prior to the February 27 Assembly elections, Meghalayan legislators continued to switch parties, with one Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) legislator leaving the Assembly and the party on Monday to join the opposition Congress.


In the last two months, 19 Meghalaya MLAs have switched from their original parties and the Assembly to join new ones.

Saleng Sangma, a top NCP leader in the northeastern state, has handed in his resignation letter to Andrew Simons, the commissioner and secretary of the Meghalaya Assembly.


In November 2021, twelve MLAs, led by former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma (2010–2018), who had won the 2018 Assembly election as candidates for the Congress, switched to the Trinamool Congress, making the West Bengal-based organization the dominant opposition in the northeastern state.
