Nagaland Naga People's Front (NPF) party today said "it is simply amazing how majority of the MLAs had elected Neiphiu Rio as the Interim President of the Naga People's Front party.In a press statement issued by the Media & Press Bureau of the Naga People's Front, Central Headquarters in Kohima today said these people have obviously learned nothing from the 2015 crisis when "majority" of NPF legislators elected Noke Wangnao as the President of the "NPF" and moved the Election Commission of India for the party symbol.Did the ECI recognize Wangnao as the NPF President then and allot the group the party symbol? Just as in 2015, majority of the Central Office Bearers and the Central Executive Council members along with, in the instant case, twelve out of thirteen Division Units, are with the party and President Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu.So, it brings us to the question of how the illegal party of suspended/ expelled NPF legislators and the political gypsies could claim that the Interim President elected by the legislators on July 31, 2017 has any legal backing. Party workers and supporters elect the legislators and not the other way round. And once these legislators are elected, they cannot be replaced at one's whims and fancies before expiry of their tenure, namely, five years, even if they make fools of themselves, gallivant in Kaziranga or shift their allegiance to the highest bidder just as persons in the world's oldest profession do.The statement said having shredded legalities into tatters with the Speaker of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly acting like the main villain and the Governor of Nagaland playing the role of the Godfather in the whole sordid affair, this group of illegal persons had presumed that they could do anything and get away scot free, like setting up an illegal office, appoint someone to a non-existent post as Interim President, and also make absurd demand to the legally-elected President to step down within fifteen days and hand over the properties of the party to them! But in this age of modernity, might is not necessarily right: There are rules and laws to which we must adhere to as civilized society, the statement said. UNI AS RN 2034
