Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, who has not yet divulged which constituency he would contest from, said on Monday a decision would be taken at a regional conference of the party here on May 9.
To a query, he said the party has not decided whether he should contest from South Tura constituency, which is currently represented by his sister Agatha Sangma.
Sangma, who is leading the six-party Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government, was sworn in as the chief minister on March 6. The Tura MP will have to give up his Lok Sabha seat within six months, which will end in September.
He told reporters that the May 9 meeting will be attended by Manipur deputy chief minister Yumnam Joykumar Singh and leaders of the different state units in the region.
“The meeting will also discuss the need to organise the party for the upcoming elections in Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh,” he added.
