Mizoram Election 2023: Zoramthanga Claims MNF’s Debacle Due to Incumbency

Northeast Desk, 4th December: In a political upheaval, Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) clinches victory in the 2023 Mizoram elections, securing 27 out of 40 seats and toppling the incumbent Mizo National Front (MNF).

The ZPM, formed through the merger of six parties, ushers in a new era by securing a majority in the legislative assembly, prompting the resignation of MNF’s Zoramthanga as Chief Minister.

Lalduhoma, ZPM’s Chief Ministerial candidate, emerges victorious in Serchhip, defeating MNF’s J Malsawmzuala Vanchhawng by 2,982 votes.

Key wins, including the defeat of Deputy Chief Minister Tawnluia and Health Minister R Lalthangliana, signal a clear desire for change among the electorate.

Anti-incumbency sentiments contribute to the MNF’s loss, acknowledged by Zoramthanga, ending the long-standing duopoly of the MNF and Congress in Mizoram’s politics.

The ZPM’s campaign focused on the need for change, resonating with voters and reflecting a significant reconfiguration of Mizoram’s political landscape.

While the BJP makes modest gains with two seats, the Congress struggles with only a single lead in the latest counts.

The 2023 Mizoram elections signify a turning point, with the ZPM’s rise indicating a new chapter driven by a public mandate for change and a rejection of the status quo.
