In Arunachal Pradesh, the results are being announced today for 50 of the 60 assembly seats. The BJP, under the leadership of Chief Minister Pema Khandu, has already secured victory in ten assembly seats unopposed. Chief Minister Khandu is among the ten BJP candidates who won their seats without opposition. The BJP’s strong performance ensures its continued governance in the state.

In Sikkim, the SKM, led by Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang, has won 18 seats in the 32-member assembly, securing a clear majority. This victory marks the SKM’s second consecutive term in office.
