The Democratic Alliance of Nagaland, comprising the Nagaland People's Front, the Bharatiya Janata Party, Janata Dal-United and the Samata Party, on Sunday evening received the support of four Independent legislators, which took its strength in the 60-member House to 33.
It is now all set to form the government in Nagaland, NPF spokesperson K Therie said in Kohima.
Therie said the governor had been informed of their strength and the alliance would submit to him the list of MLAs within a day or two.
"The DAN legislators are meeting tomorrow to decide the future course of action," he said.
"The new government," he said, "will work hand in hand with the NDA government [at the Centre] and our main aim is to secure a negotiated political settlement of the Naga problem."
The NPF spokesman said 'Chief Minister S C Jamir's' men used their 'armed gangs' to intimidate the voters.
Meanwhile, Jamir said he had accepted the verdict of the people and would submit his resignation on Monday.
