As the Congress party announced that it would withdraw one of its two nominees for the May 21 elections to nine seats, the stage is now set for chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to be elected to the MLC unopposed.

State Congress president Balasaheb Thorat said, “We have decided to field only one out of two nominees for the MLC elections, which means the Maha Vikas Aghadi of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress will have five nominees for as many seats (out of the total nine)”.

Thackeray, who is not a member of either Houses of the state legislature, is one of the nominees for the elections, which became necessary after terms of the sitting MLCs ended on April 24.

As the Congress had earlier decided to field only one candidate for the May 21 elections, there were nine candidates in the fray for as many seats.

The Shiv Sena and NCP, other two ruling alliance partners, have so far announced two candidates each.

The BJP has fielded four candidates.
