Seat sharing finalised, CPI(M) to fight in 47 while Congress in 13 seats in Tripura Polls 2023

Guwahati: The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPIM) and Congress have agreed on the seat distribution, with the CPI(M) vying for 47 seats and Congress for 13.

According to reports, the Congress won’t run a candidate for the Badarghar seat. In exchange, CPI(M) would reserve their own seat in Pabiachhara. On February 2, the final day for withdrawal of nomination papers, all will become known.

Meanwhile, no decision has been taken regarding the seat-sharing agreement between the CPI(M) and TIPRA Motha. The chief of TIPRA Motha Pradyot Manikya Debbarma who is currently in Shillong will visit to Tripura on February 4.

TIPRA Motha spokesperson Anthony Debbarma asserted that beginning on February 2 they will not remove their candidates from any seat. TIPRA Motha will compete for each of the 43 seats.

The CPI(M) has additionally asked Congress to withdraw candidates from any other seats.

On January 30, former minister and Congress MLA Sudip Roy Barman stated that a new dawn was on the horizon for Tripura as people anxiously anticipated exercising their right to vote.

Roy Barman, who will run for office from Agartala 6 on home soil, predicted that voters would make the right choice on February 16 because they were aware of the state’s current situation.

“I have submitted a nomination paper on behalf of Congress and will contest from 6 Agartala Assembly Constituency. I believe the people of the state will take the right decision on February 16 understanding the present scenario of the state. The mood of the people is very happy and waiting to exercise their franchise and waiting for restoring democracy in the state which was curtailed in the last five years. A new dawn is waiting for Tripura”, said Roy Barman.

On the recent political understanding between CPIM and Congress, Roy Barman termed it as a seat-sharing but not an alliance. 

“The left parties have left 13 seats for us and so far strength is concerned, we are equally as strong as the left party almost in all the assembly constituencies. We scarifies their thought and AICC also took stock of the ground using various inputs and agencies and thought that Congress should fight in minimum 17 seats and so we have fielded candidates in 17 seats”, the congress leader said.

On free and fair polls he said, “We have cent per cent faith in the election commission of India and believed that for the free and fair election to exercise their franchise by the electors it will be done in accordance”.
