After claiming its stake to form the next government in Nagaland with committed support of four Independent legislators, the Democratic Alliance of Nagaland on Tuesday said it would play the role of a facilitator in the Naga peace talks.

A joint statement from Nagaland People's Front president Shurhozelie, state BJP president Ato Yepthomi and NCP state president Sulangthung Lotha said, "We will continue to play the role of a facilitator to the ongoing peace talks in finding an honourable and acceptable settlement to the Naga political problem."

The NPF-led DAN paraded 34 MLAs, including four Independents on Sunday before Governor K Shankararaynan to stake claim to form the government.

The alliance requested the Governor to revoke President's Rule by Tuesday.

Out of 59 results declared so far, the NPF won 26 and its pre-poll alliance partners NCP and BJP two each, while opposition Congress won from 23 seats and Independents captured six seats.
