Bypoll to the seven vacant seats in the two Autonomous District Councils in Meghalaya will be held on December 13 and the Model Code of Conduct will come into effect from November 21, District Council Affairs Minister Prestone Tynsong said.
The seats fell vacant after seven of the eight legislators who held two elected posts in the State, resigned after the Governor gave his assent to a Bill preventing them from doing so. The District Councils Affairs Department notified the date for polls after Governor V Shanmuganathan approved the calendar fixed by the government, he said. – PTI
