|Sikkim MLAs to take oath tomorrow|
GANGTOK, June 1 - The inaugural session of the 10th Sikkim Assembly will be held for a day on June 3, a notification issued by the Raj Bhawan said. During the session, Pro-tem Speaker Sangay Lepcha will administer oath to the 29 newly elected MLAs in the 32-member Assembly, the notification said on Friday.
Three candidates – former Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling and DT Lepcha (both SDF), and Kunga Nima Lepcha (SKM) – were elected from two seats each.
Chief Minister PS Golay is not a member of the Legislative Assembly as he had not contested the recently-concluded Assembly polls in Sikkim. His party, Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM), emerged victorious by bagging 17 seats.
On the other hand, the Pawan Kumar Chamling-led SDF won 15 seats and was thrown out of power after nearly 25 years. – PTI
