KHADC to hold election soon to elect Syiem of Hima Mylliem

Shillong, May 30: The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) has decided to soon conduct the election for appointment of the Syiem of Hima Mylliem.

Informing on Thursday, KHADC deputy chief executive member in-charge Elaka, Pynïaid Sing Syiem said that the date for election is likely to be notified next week.

The decision was taken after the suspended Syiem of Hima Mylliem, Latho Manik Syiem had withdrawn the case filed against the Council, he said.

Latho Manik Syiem was put under suspension by the then Executive Committee led by Pynshngai├▒ N Syiem in April, 2016 following allegations of embezzlement of money.

The affairs of the Hima Mylliem at present are being taking care by the acting Syiem, Ainam Manik Syiem. Prior to his appointment, the KHADC had appointed Ricky Nelson Syiem as the acting Syiem.
