Once an assembly is dissolved, the rulebook requires that a new house must be in place within six months.

According to Mr Khuntia, the winning factor of the alliance partners would decide as to who would get how many seats to contest.
“It’s not the question of numbers; it’s a question of winnability”, he said, adding, while the Congress is the major partner, the three other parties would get “preference” in segments where they are in a better position.
