Mizoram Election 2018 Results: Five-time Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla has 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. He got 4163 votes, while his challenger Lalnuntluanga received 5212 votes. The margin of loss was little less in Serchhip where the chief minister lost by 410 votes.
In Serchhip, Lal Thanhawla got 5071 votes, while Nationalist Party founder Lalduhoma received 5481 votes. With this, Thanhawla’s hope of coming back to power for the third consecutive terms is shattered. In the last assembly polls, Thanhawla had contested from Serchhip and Hrangturzo.
In Serchhip, Thanwala had won by 734 votes and defeated his closest rival Lalramzauva who got 4,985 votes. The Mizoram CM had won 5719 votes. In Hrangturzo constituency, Thanhawla had defeated Mizoram People’s Conference’s Lalthansanga by 1638 votes.
Previously, Thanhawla was the Chief Minister from 1984 to 1986 and from 1989 to 1998. In 2013, he was again elected and became the chief minister for the record fifth time. The incumbent chief minister is facing Mizo National Front’s C Lalramzauva and Zoram People’s Movement chief ministerial candidate Lalduhoma from Serchhip constituency.
The chief minister is aiming for the third consecutive term which appears to be tough considering exit poll numbers. Almost all the exit poll numbers have predicted an edge for the Mizo National Front.
