Shillong, Mar 3: The Election Commission on Saturday announced results for Meghalaya Assembly Elections 2018. The results, dispersed among many local parties, did not come in any party’s favour to form government in the northeastern state. While the Congress emerged as the largest party by securing victory on 21 seats, National People’s Party won 19 seats. United Democratic Party and People’s Democratic Front won six and four seats respectively. The states voted on February 27. The state recorded an impressive turnout of 84.86 per cent.

“When you are in politics you need to know how to handle defeats. Looking at the way the Left has reacted to the verdict, it seemed that they need to learn sportsmanship. The people have watched what has happened, they have seen how things were done. And, they have responded with their votes,” said Modi.
