Dimapur, January 9 (NE): The present Deputy Speaker-cum-MLA from Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) is likely to be the new Speaker for Nagaland legislative Assembly (NLA) after the demise of late Shri Vikho-O Yhoshu as the then Speaker of NLA from NDPP.
An information recieved exclusively to NagalandExpress, the source informed that the candidate will be finalized very soon – though the name of Shri Sharingain Longkumer is doing the rounds. “He is very much perfect for the said post, though newly elected as MLA.
