  1. DPT will have to change the candidates for Sephu _ Nisho and Athang if they need to win from PDP, otherwise, I see very little chance for DPT to win these two constituency in the years to come. 

    There are still few very potential candidates and candidates with high repute from these two constituencies which DPT can eye for before late. 

  2. It’s too late for DPT to be changing candidates, if DPT loses, so be it, but changing candidates will play right into the hands of PDP.
