Mizoram Election Result 2018: The Mizo National Front has wrested power from the Congress in Mizoram. It has won 26 of 40 seats, well above 21 required for the majority. With this, the Congress has lost its last remaining bastion in the Northeast. The Congress was reduced to just five seats from 34 seats in 2013. This year, the vote share of Congress came down from 44.6 per cent to 30 per cent. The MNF has seen 10 per cent jump in its vote share.

Congress Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla lost from both the seats — Champhai South and Serchhip. In Champhai South, the chief minister lost the election to MNF’s T J Lalnuntluanga by 1049 votes. The margin of loss was little less in Serchhip where the chief minister lost by 410 votes. BJP leader BD Chakma won from Tuichawng by 1594 votes.

Following the announcement of the result, Mizo Front President Zoramthanga met Mizoram governor and staked claim to form the government in the state. He also said that he would not have any coalition government either with BJP or any other ways. “We’re a part of NEDA (North-East Democratic Alliance) and NDA but we wouldn’t like to join Congress or UPA,” the MNF chief said.

Outgoing Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla expressed his shock over the results. Speaking to reporters, he said: ‘This is very disappointing. I didn’t expect this. I think I underestimated the new formation ZPM.’ In the last assembly elections, the Congress had swept the state by bagging 34 of 40 seats with 45 per cent vote share. Zoramthanga-led MNF had received 29 per cent vote share but could win just five seats. Both the parties — Congress and MNF — have been in power since 1987.
