SHILLONG, May 14: The name of the Chairperson of the Meghalaya State Commission for Women (MSCW) has been finalised and it will officially be announced immediately after the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) comes to an end.
This was informed by Social Welfare Minister Paul Lyngdoh on Tuesday.
“We have already gone through the entire process, cleared the name of one individual whom we cannot name at this point of time because of the MCC,” Lyngdoh said.
The minister revealed that the all due diligence including the Chief Minister’s approval on the matter has been completed. “…all that remains now is for the formal announcement of the new incumbent which will be made immediately after the counting of votes,” he added.
Asked for his comment on the delay, he said, “There is no such thing as delay. The name has been cleared and the person concerned already consented to the appointment”.
The Commissionhas been without a chairperson for almost 10 months. The post has remained vacant following the resignation of Phidalia Toi on June 24 last year.
The new chairperson, if elected will have about nine or less months to remain in office since the term of the present body will end in December this year.
