Shurhozelie to take oath on Wednesday

Shurhozelie Liezietsu is taking oath as Nagaland Chief Minister on Wednesday two days after the Naga Peoples’ Front legislators elected the party president as their legislative body chief.

Immediately after NPF legislators met Governor P B Acharya on Monday staking claim to form the new government with Liezietsu as chief minister, the date of oath taking ceremony was fixed on Wednesday.

Acharya will administer the 81 old Naga politician and author as chief minister at the Raj Bhawan in the morning.

His cabinet colleagues are also set to take the oath of office and secrecy in the ceremony.

The cabinet colleagues, more or less, would remain unchanged. But the portfolios might be slightly changed. DAN president and outgoing chief minister TR Zeliang will also present in the oath taking ceremony.

Liezietsu did not contest and his son who is representing constituency is contemplating to quit to pave the for his chief minister father within the next six months.
