mizoram

AIZAWL: In the recent Mizoram assembly elections, the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) faced a significant setback. Out of the 40 assembly seats, the MNF is leading in only 11 while the Zaram People's Movement (ZPM) has taken the lead in 26 seats. BJP is leading in both and the Congress is ahead in one seat.

Chief Minister Soramthanka is trailing by over 2100 votes in the Aizawl East constituency, with reports confirming his loss by 2101 votes. ZPM's chief, Lalduhoma has expressed confidence in forming the government independently in the state.

Exit poll predictions initially favoured the MNF, with two-thirds anticipating their lead, while one poll indicated an advantage for the ZPM. However, the ZPM is now surpassing these projections.

In the 2018 elections, the MNF secured power with 26 seats, but the current results show a stark decline. The Congress, which held five seats previously is now reduced to just one.
