Starting the count of votes in Mizoram is crucial for the 74-year-old ex-IPS officer Lalduhoma, who is a Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) candidate. The party is now in the lead in the chief ministerial battle, with Zoramthanga’s Mizo National Front (MNF) trailing behind. An exit poll by India Today Axis-My India predicted that the ZPM will get 28–35 seats out of Mizoram’s 40-member state legislature, giving them a commanding majority.
According to the study, the Mizo National Front (MNF), led by Chief Minister Zoramthanga, will have 3–7 seats, the Congress 2-4 seats, and the BJP 0–2 seats. On November 7, voters in Mizoram chose 40 candidates for the state assembly.
Regarding Raymond’s “realistic” deal with Nawaz Modi and Gautam Singhania,
The father of the Zoram People’s Movement, Lalduhoma, who is now 74 years old, was a police officer in the Indian state of Goa. He was tasked with keeping then-prime leader Indira Gandhi safe in the country’s capital.
He created the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) after retiring from the military, and his 1984 election to the Lok Sabha marked a turning moment.
In contrast, his political fortunes reversed when he became the first politician to be dismissed from office for violating the anti-defection laws. Even though he had setbacks, Lalduhoma persisted in the northeastern state.
He was nominated for the position of chief minister by the coalition of the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), headed by the ZNP, in the most recent Assembly elections. In spite of being expelled from the assembly in 2020 for violating the anti-defection statute, he managed to secure a seat in 2021 by winning a by-election for Serchhip.
In order to observe the community’s Sunday holiday, the Christian-majority state postponed the vote tallying by one day. Whatever the ultimate tally may be, this election is monumental in scope. Strict security measures, early trends, and results-related uncertainty complicate the nascent political scene. Despite the escalating tensions, Vice President Lalduhoma of the ZPM and Chief Minister Zoramthanga of the MNF both insist that their parties should be in charge of forming the administration. There is presently only one seat representing the once-powerful Congress.
Historically, the two most powerful political parties in Mizoram have been the Congress and the Mizoram National Front (MNF). But now that ZPM is on the rise, things are changing, and many are wondering what the state’s political future holds. It seems like MNF and ZPM are in a close battle, but they’re both confident in their chances of winning. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is another political group vying for power; its platform prioritizes fighting corruption and promoting development.
Many are looking forward to the 2023 Mizoram Assembly election results since they might change the political storyline of the state. The political plot is becoming interesting as the ZPM is making progress and a hung legislature is a distinct possibility. Every state in India, including Mizoram, is waiting impatiently for the final tally.
