UDP confident of leading govt in 2023
Shillong, Nov 15: The United Democratic Party (UDP) has expressed confidence that the party would be able to lead the government in 2023.
After the Central Executive Committee meeting, general secretary of the party Jemino Mawthoh told reporters that the party has been working with different political parties as partners in the government and the UDP was often accused of being team B to Congress and NPP.
‘But I hope this time around it is going to be different. I hope with the strengthening of the party and choosing the right candidates from different constituencies , we will be able to win more seats this time and we hope UDP will lead the government in 2023’, he said.
Earlier, newly elected Mawphlang legislator Eugeneson Lyngdoh and MDC from Garo Hills Ashahel D Shira were felicitated during the CEC meeting chaired by the party leader Metbah Lyngdoh.
Mawthoh said the meeting discussed about strengthening the party organisation at different levels, at the district level, at the constituency level and also the youth wing, women’s wing and the farmers wing.
The members of the CEC agreed that the core committee of the UDP will sit and deliberate and articulate the views given by the party leaders at different levels and to provide the much needed support to all the districts.
