The HoD was dominated by the National People’s Party (NPP) of Amichand Rajbansi, who in 1984 had 18 seats to Solidarity’s 17, with one other party and four independents. It faced a second election in 1989, when it lost to Solidarity (18 seats) after having secured only eight seats. Other parties and Independents took 16 seats.
