This is the third consecutive victory for Chief Minister Pawan Chamling's Sikkim Democratic Front in the assembly elections. Chamling says the win is a testimony to the fact that his party has been leading the state in the right direction for the past decade.
"Now that we have been voted back to power, our responsibilities have increased," Chamling said, even as he declared the people's mandate to be a victory for the SDF's vision and ideology.
"We will make Sikkim a model state now," said Chamling.
The SDF won all the 25 declared seats of the total 32 assembly seats. The Congress came second in these constituencies.
The result made it clear the people of Sikkim had rejected the "casteist and opportunistic forces," the chief minister said.
