Kohima, August 11: It is unfortunate that the some expelled/ suspended members and Area Units in Mokokchung district are trying to personally take on the signatories of documents suspending and expelling NPF legislators for their anti-party activities. All disciplinary matters are decided collectively in the party meetings and an official order has to bear the authorized person(s) signature for official purposes, therefore, no individual(s) should be targeted.
With the announcement of the Election Commission of India, for 10 Northern Angami-I (ST) A.C, Vide. NO. ECI/PN/53/2016 dated 29th June 2017, the Model Code of Conduct came into force.
The Naga Peoples’ Front (NPF) Central office President Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu, being the contesting candidate came within ambit of the code of conduct. Hence, he issued an official NOTIFICATION, Vide dated 4th July 2017, authorising the two Working Presidents of NPF, Mr. Apong Pongener and Mr. Huskha Yepthomi, in exercise of the power conferred upon him vide. Art V, clause 2 read with Clause (9) of the party Constitution to perform/ function as President till By-election process was completed.
Now, therefore, the office ORDERs of the NPF Party signed by the two Working Presidents of the NPF party bear the authority of the Party President within that period are legal and official.
It is most unbecoming that officials should be personally targeted for performing their duties and responsibilities conscientiously.
