Meghalaya Assembly Elections 2018

The Meghalaya Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) election, was held on Feb 27, 2018, as the tenure of the current members expires in March of this year. While the assembly election schedule of Meghalaya is yet to be announced, it is being suspected that the election will be held in February 2018. It is being estimated that the poll details and poll schedule of Meghalaya would soon be announced in January 2018. Achal Kumar Joti, the then Chief Election Commissioner, told the media that he was satisfied with the Vidhan Sabha poll preparations happening in the state and he believed that the state was ready to go to polls anytime. The upcoming assembly elections in Meghalaya having 60 seats will mark its 10th legislature. The state is currently under the rule of Congress government. Two other elections which will be held along with Meghalaya election in the month of february are Nagaland election and Tripura election. The last assembly election in Meghalaya was held in 2013.

BJP Appears All Confident - Might Fight all Alone in Meghlaya Assembly Polls

BJP is positive and confident of its grip over the Northeastern state, part of the reason the party is thinking of going solo in the 2018 Meghalaya Vidhan Sabha polls. The saffron party is conducting surveys and would take the final call based on that. Nalin Kohli, BJP Secretary of Meghalaya, stated that the party did not win any seat in the last elections of 2013; however, it was ahead in the 6 out of 7 seats for the Lok Sabha elections held in 2014. The party leaders believe that they are likely to win more votes if they don't form a coalition with other parties for the upcoming 2018 Meghalaya Legislative Assembly (Vidhan Sabha) election.

The saffron party has extra reason to be confident. After a twin win in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, the party is elated and even aiming high to achieve a target of 40 seats out of 60, as a part of its 'Mission 40.' The BJP is ruling most of the states in India currently and is hoping to oust Congress from this state as well. PM Modi too will be heading to Meghalaya towards the end of the year 2017. He would inaugurate several projects related to infrastructure as well as a BJP office in the state.

Other Major Players

Parties other than BJP too are gearing up to fight the 2018 Assembly polls in Meghalaya. NPP (National People Party) is out with the name of 24 candidates, notably among them is former union minister Agatha K Sangma. The party also has quite a presence in Jaintia and Khasi hills. United Democratic Party (UDP) has decided to join forces with other parties with a similar manifesto and aims to bring down the Congress. People Democratic Front (PDF) too joined the race and declared its chief ministerial candidate.

Several parties believe that the Vidhan Sabha Elections in Meghalaya can prove a downfall for Congress and anti-incumbency can play a great role in the same.

Advance Preparations for Polls

Way ahead of the Meghalaya Assembly elections, the Meghalaya government has transferred 18 police officers, 7 of who are IPS officers. Some of them have been given promotions and are posted at Shillong headquarters. The state has also taken an initiative towards women empowerment and declared that the 60 out of the total polling booths in the state will be completely manned by women. From security personnel to micro observers, it will be an all-women operation.
