Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, who has been elected to the Lok Sabha from the Ladakh seat, on Friday resigned from the post of Chief Executive Councillor (CEC) and chairman of the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Leh.

He has also resigned as councillor from the Marstelang constituency which he represented in the 30-member general council.
