Swearing-in does not make Golay eligible: SDF

Gangtok, 29 May:

Sikkim Democratic Front has today said that PS Tamang [Golay] being sworn in as the Chief Minister was no proof of his eligibility either for the post or even to contest elections. In this regard, the party has dismissed allegations that it had misled people on Mr Tamang’s disqualification from contesting elections.

An SDF press release issued by its general secretary [press & publicity], Kavita Subba, further states that even if the agencies tasked with holding up the constitution opted to ignore constitutional provisions on the matter, it does not mean that there are no higher agencies to address the issue. Law and truth will prevail sooner or later, the party states.

At the same time, SDF president, Pawan Chamling has congratulated Mr Tamang and his team, it is added.
