Yesterday, both Rio and Zeliang had met Governor P B Acharya and claimed to have the support of majority of MLAs.
He said that three parties fought the election in an alliance.
An order signed on Sunday by EC Secretary Arvind Kumar said a tabulation error made by the Returning Officer on Saturday led to the declaration of N.R. Zeliang of the Naga People's Front (NPF) as the victor of the Tenning constituency instead of Namri Nchang of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP).
They were accompanied by Chingwang Konyak, President NDPP; Visasolie Lhongou, President BJP Nagaland State Unit; V. Abu Metha, Secretary General NDPP; and Rusemtong Longkumer, General Secretary, NDPP. "We would together stake a claim to form the government".
Kikon said the incumbent Chief Minister Zeliang is in close touch with the BJP high command and "we still hope good sense will prevail on the BJP leaders".
Curtains fell on the drama over the formation of government with Assam minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma reaching Kohima to iron out the fine details of the coalition, christened People's Democratic Alliance. Acharya said the grouping should form the government. With the state witnessing a hung Assembly, the BJP has emerged as the kingmaker being wooed by both the main regional parties.
