Nagaland Peoples Front Candidate List Party Leaders History

In Nagaland, both the ruling Naga People’s Front and the opposition party, the UPA, supported Pranab Mukherjee during the 2012 presidential election. Mukherjee held a meeting with Neiphiu Rio and DAN legislators in Dimapur where NPF leaders formally endorsed their support. Mukherjee won the election on July 19, 2012.

When the Nagaland Post asked the Chief Minister, Neiphiu Rio, if the support extended to the presidential candidate was also “issue based” as the NPF-led DAN was supporting the UPA government at the centre on the same line, the Chief Minister said that his party was supporting the UPA and hence it was the right perspective that the DAN legislators also support UPA’s presidential nominee. Nagaland Peoples Front main opposition in the legislative assembly is the Indian National Congress party.

  • Work for economic advancement of the people with special emphasis on rural development with a view to removing economic disparity in the society.
  • Strive for a clean and efficient administration.
