SHILLONG, March 13: Incumbent Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) chairman Good Leaderson Nongsiej is likely to be proposed as the new Council’s chief executive member.
Sources in the KHADC informed that majority of the members of the ruling People’s Democratic Forum (PDF) have proposed the name of Nongsiej, an MDC from Nongstoin for the top post.
This was after the present KHADC chief Pynshngain N Syiem had recently expressed his desire to quit the post. According to sources, Syiem had maintained that he wanted to focus more into the affairs of the newly floated People Democratic Front (PDF) which won four seats in the just concluded Assembly elections.
It may be mentioned that Syiem who is a former MLA from Mawsynram lost his seat to Congress nominee Himalaya Shangpliang in the recently concluded state elections.
