Sikkim MLAs to be sworn-in on June 3

The oath taking ceremony of Sikkim MLAs will be held on June 3 according to a statement issued by the Raj Bhawan.

Pro-term Speaker Sangay Lepcha will administer the oath of office and secrecy during the session to the 29 newly elected MLAs in the 32-member assembly. The statement said that three candidates namely former Chief Minister Pawan Kumar Chamling and D T 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.

Golay’s party Sikkim Krantikari Morcha emerged victory by bagging 17 seats in the election.

On the other hand, Pawan Kumar Chamling of SDF has thrown out of power nearly after 25 years as it has won 15 seats in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly election.
