SHILLONG, Oct 12: The United Democratic Party (UDP) has decided to field second runners up of KHADC 2014 elections, Wankupar Syiemlieh to contest from Sohiong seat. Titostarwell Chyne, UDP member and chairman of District Election Committee informed that Syiemlieh was selected by the committee and his candidature will be forwarded to the State Election Committee for formal approval. Sohiong-Nongspung seat fell vacant following the resigtion of HDR Lyngdoh after the State Legislative amended the dual posts that barred MLAs from being MDCs. Syiemlieh will face competition from Congress candidate thaniel Osbert Rymmai (Nongspung-Sohiong) and HSPDP’s Samlin Malniang (Sohiong-Nongspung).
