Why did the Election Commission modify the counting of votes for the Mizoram Assembly Election 2023?
The Election Commission stated that the date was changed because they received several applications from various regions of the state requesting a change in the counting day. It was mentioned that this decision was made based on the significance of Sunday for the Christian-majority state of Mizoram.
In an official statement on Friday, the Election Commission said, “The Commission has received several applications from various regions, requesting a change in the date of counting from December 3, 2023 (Sunday) to any other day of the week. This is based on the significance of Sunday, December 3, 2023, for the people of Mizoram.”
Voting for the Mizoram Assembly Election 2023 took place on November 7th, with a total voter turnout of 80.66%.
What did the exit polls predict for the Mizoram Election 2023? In the 2023 elections, the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) is facing challenges from the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), Congress, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
According to poll predictions, there is a possibility of a hung assembly in Mizoram, and no party is expected to cross the majority mark of 21 seats. The exit polls indicate a potential setback for the Mizo National Front (MNF), led by Chief Minister Zoramthanga. The analysis suggests that Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) could win 19-20 seats, while the ruling MNF might secure only 12-13 seats in the state. Forming a government in Mizoram requires a political party to win 21 seats.
