On polling day Nagaland recorded 75% voting, the Election Commission (EC) has said.
JanKiBaat-NewsX and CVoter exit polls have predicted victory for the NDPP-BJP which is likely to get 25-31 seats with 38.4 per cent vote share and the NPF likely to bag 19-25 seats with a vote share of 27.1 per cent.
The Congress in Nagaland is set to lose a lot with the poll predicting 0-4 seats with a vote share of 19.7 per cent, while others may get 6-10 seats with a vote share of 14.8 per cent, according to CVoter.
In the 60-member assembly, a party would need 31 seats to get a clear majority.
