Opposition withdrawal secures uncontested victory for Deputy CM Chowna Mein

In a pivotal development ahead of the Arunachal Pradesh elections, Bayamso Kri, the sole opposition candidate, withdrew from the race on Saturday, coinciding with the final date for withdrawal. This strategic move has guaranteed an uncontested victory for Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein.

Kri’s withdrawal solidifies Deputy CM Chowna Mein’s position, ensuring his unchallenged return to office. This development not only underscores the dominance of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) but also reflects the evolving political dynamics in the state.

With Kri’s withdrawal, the tally of uncontested victories for BJP candidates has now reached eight across various constituencies in Arunachal Pradesh. Notable among these uncontested candidates are Pema Khandu from Mukto, Mutchu Mithi from Roing, and Hage Apa from Ziro.

This latest development amplifies the BJP’s stronghold in Arunachal Pradesh, signaling a potential shift in the state’s political landscape. As the electoral process progresses, observers anticipate the implications of these uncontested victories on governance and representation in the region.
