Consult tribal hohos before enactment of new NM Act: Senden


Welcoming the resolution of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly to unanimously repeal the Nagaland Municipal Act, 2001 in toto, the Ao Senden on Wednesday appealed to the State government to include/consult all tribal hohos before enacting the new Nagaland Municipal Act (NMA).
This was among several resolutions adopted at the emergency consultative meeting held here on Wednesday to deliberate on the issue related to municipal and town council (ULBs) elections.
It also reminded that the Seden would stand firm against holding of municipal/town council elections in Ao jurisdiction if such Act infringes upon Article 371A of the constitution.
The house also resolved that until the new Municipal Act is passed, it would not allow any advisory body to function in the municipal/town councils under Ao jurisdiction.
Meanwhile, the house lauded the members of the NLA for heeding the voice of the people by repealing the Nagaland Municipal Act, 2001.
