Some of those who voted YES had this to say:
• Yes, any political party with good ideology and principle can bring positive impact to situation like we are facing in NLA where there is no opposition to check wrong policies of governance and corruptions in Nagaland.
• Yes, every new party creates a new opportunity to prove their worth to society. It is also a fact that people are tired of being cheated and are tired of new parties being formed for the sake of political convenience. The new parties will have to prove themselves to the people.
• Yes, new political parties can change the game, and especially the younger generation should step up.
• Yes if they have the intention and common sense to do so because all the existing parties have betrayed the hope of the people. It is a good opportunity for the new ones.
Some of those who voted NO had this to say:
• No, Not at all. So long as their motive is self-preservation and self-interest, there will be no change in Nagaland. This is the simple fact.
• No way not when the same bunch of players are involved at the moment just old wine in a new bottle. A totally new party with none of the baggages of the past and hidden agendas is needed to catch the imagination of the youth who will be playing a crucial role this election.
• No. Same old concept and corrupted person with same old mentality and mindset, they are not a school and college going student now to learn. So how can change?!
• Same old people with different nomenclature…. It will be same way.
• No way…the prodigal son returned, but with the same dress on.
• Same OLD Wine with lots of Alcohol Contents in a NEW Bottle
• No because the party may be new but its the same old same old people. It makes sense only when the people are also new.
• No. It’s another game of political parties to fool the public.
• No. this shows move of our division instead of more unity.
• No way…..Its a just a game played on us for their gain. I will rather not vote my entire life.
• It’s really a controversial issue when it comes to formation of new parties. Everyone wants to be the head in Nagaland. This will never bring any positive change.
Some of those who voted OTHERS had this to say:
• Our leaders are not serious. They are only playing games with each other. Nagaland has become their playground for them. Don’t they see how bad our situation has become? They are not thinking about the future.
• Irrelevant question. Same as a person wearing a new dress.
• Yes and No. Yes, because if a new party arises with genuine manifesto and shows principled stand in word and deed, I believe there’s hope for a better Nagaland. No, if it’s a case of old fermented wine in a new bottle.
• Difficult to say because they have not been tested yet. At the same time its the same old people.
• Its time for new faces and it is also time for the public to start electing the right people.
