They added that the apex Court had also ruled that the Governor can summon or dissolve the Assembly for the goal of floor test or no-confidence motion only when he is convinced the Council of Ministers has lost the confidence of the House.

Liezietsu, who is also the NPF President, was sworn in as the Chief Minister on February 22 after Zeliang's resignation following violent protests by tribal groups who opposed the latter's move of holding civic polls with 33 per cent reservation for women. On the plea of bye-election being another issue, the Governor opined that the bye-election was for only one constituency.
