Mr Hopingstone Lyngdoh, the founder-president of the HSPDP, was elected as the Chief Executive Member of the Khasi Hills District Council on 31 March. The unanimous choice of this popular leader from the West Khasi Hills district is said to be a compromise between the out-going CEM, Mr B. Wanniang and some of the new claimants.

This is the first time that Mr Lyngdoh has assumed the office of CEM.

In the first showdowns, the ruling APHLC -HSPDP combine suffered a mild shock when one of their Members voted for the opposition nominee in the election of Chairman. Mr P G Marbaniang, who was elected by 20-8 votes in the secret ballot, defeated Mr H S Shylla, the opposition sponsored candidate. A Congress(I) member was absent.

Sources said that the office of Deputy Chairman has been allotted to the APHLC. Of the four offices of Executive Member, the two parties have decided to take two each.

Earlier, the Deputy Commissioner, Mr J Tayeng conducted the swearing in of the newly-elected members.
