However, the Election Commission on November 29 deferred the counting to December 4 (Monday) following appeals by political parties and organisations citing the special significance of Sunday for the people of Mizoram, a Christian-majority state.
The elections to the 40-member Mizoram assembly were held in a single phase on November 7. A voter turnout of 80.66% was recorded on the day.
In the northeastern state, four major contenders are in the fray — the ruling Mizo National Front (MNF), the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Most exit polls have predicted a tight contest between the two regional parties — MNF and ZPM. While two exit polls, conducted by India Today-Axis and Jan ki Baat-News 18, have projected ZPM as favourites, two others — ABP-Cvoter and P-Marg — gave advantage to the MNF. The Congress has been projected at third position followed by the BJP by the exit polls.
In 2018, the MNF ousted the Congress from power by winning 26 seats. The ZPM, which was formed a year before the previous polls, came second winning eight seats, relegating the Congress, which bagged five, to the third spot. The BJP made its debut in the Christian-majority state by winning a lone seat.
While MNF, ZPM and Congress have fielded candidates in all 40 seats, the BJP is contesting in 23 constituencies. A total of 174 candidates, including 16 women and 17 Independents, were in the fray. The outgoing assembly had no women legislator.
