The Election Commission of India is likely to announce a fresh date for holding the polls in the constituency.
Kohima: The polling for the Tuensang Sadar I assembly constituency in Nagaland has been postponed after the death of Congress candidate and sitting MLA P Chuba Chang at a hospital in Kohima Friday. Chang (49) was ailing and he breathed his last at a private hospital in Kohima Friday.
Nagaland Joint Chief Electoral Officer N Moa Aier said this Saturday and added that they have written to the Election Commission of India, which is likely to announce a fresh date for holding the polls in the constituency.
