Northeast Assembly Election Results 2018: The counting of votes is underway on Saturday for Tripura assembly election results 2018, and Meghalaya assembly election results 2018, respectively. 

Putting up a spectacular show, the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and its ally, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT), were headed for a landslide electoral victory in Tripura assembly elections, ousting the CPI-M-lead Left Front that was in power in the state for the last 25 years. State President Biplab Kumar Deb is likely to be the chief minister. 

Even in Nagaland assembly elections, Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), which has an alliance with BJP, is giving tough competition to ruling party Naga People's Front (NPF). If NDPP fails to reach the half-way mark, BJP may have an "understanding" with the ruling NPF to form a new government of the three parties in the state.

Congress’ only hope to consolidate its position seems to be Meghalaya assembly elections as it close to reaching the half-way mark.

Polling was held for 59 of 60 Assembly seats in each of the three states for different reasons. were held on February 18. A party requires 31 seats to win.
