In the election itself, only 41 of the directly-elected and one of the indirectly-elected paramount chief seats were contested (in the remaining 36 directly-elected and 11 indirectly-elected seats, the All People's Congress was the only party with a candidate). In a campaign marred by violence, elections in eight constituencies were not held on the day of the election, but were contested at a later date.
