2013 Elections In Shillong

The Meghalaya Legislative Assembly election of 2013 was held on 23 February, 2013 to elect the Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) from each of the 60 Assembly Constituencies in the state of Meghalaya in India.

Inspite of the HNLC giving out an election boycott call in Khasi Hills by calling a 36 hours bandh, the Government had assured proper security in the zone, and had also made elaborate arrangements including free public transport facility to encourage maximum polling. According to The Shillong Times newspaper, 91 companies of security forces have been deployed all over the state to ensure a free and fair election.

Although most parts of the capital city Shillong remained deserted and shops have remained closed, people have showed a lot of enthusiasm in choosing their leader, which could be seen at every over-crowded polling booth.
