"ZPM has a different system. We have our own party constitution under which I have no responsibility or authority to appoint ministers. It has to be jointly done by the elder's council for which we have a meeting tonight. We will finalize tonight," Lalduhoma told ANI.

By expressing his gratitude to the people of Mizoram for giving the mandate in favour of ZPM, Lalduhom said "We thank all the people of Mizoram. I appeal to them to have a high hope for the future."

ZPM registered a landslide victory by winning 27 out of 40 assembly constituencies in Mizoram, of which results were declared on December 4.

On Tuesday the ZPM conducted a special worship service to mark their victory. ZPM newly elected MLA, Baryl Vanneihsangi, who was also present at the venue for the worship service, while speaking to ANI, credited all the women of the community for her victory. I dedicate this win to every woman in our society and community," she said.

The ZPM, which was formed six years ago through a merger of six smaller outfits, swept the assembly polls, ending the decades-old trend of power alternating between the MNF and the Congress in the Northeast state. (ANI)
