As the pro-tem speaker, Kikon will be chairing the first day of the Budget session of the Assembly on March 13, with the members of the NDPP-led People's Democratic Alliance (PDA) on the Treasury bench and the Naga People's Front (NPF) legislators on the opposition bench.
The House will witness MLAs occupying the opposition bench after four years.
The Congress legislators later joined the Zeliang-led Naga People's Front (NPF).
This time, however, the NPF, which had ruled the state for the past 15 years, will play the role of Opposition.
Zeliang, while accepting defeat, told mediapersons recently that the NPF will fulfill its responsibilities as a "constructive Opposition" in the Assembly.
In the recently concluded Nagaland Assembly elections, the NDPP-BJP alliance won 30 seats. The alliance, however, garnered the support of a JD(U) MLA and an Independent legislator, taking the tally to 32.
