As Mizoram gears up for the 2023 Assembly Elections, the state’s political landscape witnesses a fierce battle between Zoramthanga’s MNF, Congress, and the rising force of the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM). The traditional power struggle between MNF and Congress faces a new challenge as ZPM gains momentum, advocating a fresh political approach.

ZPM, emerging as a significant player, secured 49% of the votes in the recent Lunglei municipal elections, making its mark as the second-largest municipality in the state. In the 2018 assembly elections, ZPM secured eight seats with 22.9% of the votes, particularly gaining traction in urban areas. Zoramthanga, the 80-year-old Chief Minister, remains confident in his claim to return to power, setting the stage for a keenly observed electoral battle.
