In this connection, as neither rebuttal on the two rejections nor withdrawal of any Candidature were received as on 14th of June 2013, notified as the last date for withdrawal of Candidature, the concerned Parties have been served with Notices to only nominate eligible replacement Candidates for the above mentioned two Demkhongs by 21st of June 2013, as failing which the Commission will be compelled to conduct Uncontested Elections in these Demkhongs.

 

By Order

 

Issued on 14th of June 2013 corresponding to the 6th Day of the 5th Month of the Water Female Snake Year.
