The MNF party has won 8 seats out of 20 in the last CADC General Election held in April 2018 while the Congress and the BJP won 7 and 5 seats respectively. Under the given circumstances with no party gaining clear majority the Congress and the BJP joined hands to form the Executive Committee. In the meantime due to death of a sitting MDC of the MNF the tally for the MNF was reduced to 7. The MNF gained majority when 4 MDCs of the Congress split and joined the MNF party enhancing their tally to 11, just enough for simple majority.
