About Mizoram Elections
The north eastern hilly state of Mizoram shares an international boundary with Bangladesh and Burma, and is one of the smallest and newest states in the country. Originally part of Assam, Mizoram became a Union Territory in 1972 following the North East Reorganization act of 1972. Elections were held to the Union Territory seats in the parliament and the first representative was Pu Sangliana of the Mizo Union Party.
In 1961 the Mizo National Front was constituted under Mr Laldenga. The party was outlawed in 1967 owing to its secessionist agenda. However, the Indian Government signed a memorandum with the Mizo National Front in 1986 and the state of Mizoram came into existence on 20th February 1987. It became the 23rd state of India. The first State Assembly was constituted in 1987 with 40 elected members.
Mizoram has a unicameral state legislature with only one house in the state legislative assembly. The Legislative assembly or the Vidhan Sabha conducts the different sessions of the house at Aizawl, the capital of the state. The total number of state assembly constituencies is 40. The 40 members of the state legislative assembly are elected every five years.
The state also conducts elections to the three autonomous district councils for ethnic tribal areas to ensure local governance at grassroots for these regions within the state of Mizoram. These three councils are the Chakma Autonomous District council, Lai Autonomous District council, and Mara Autonomous District council.
The states are allocated seats in the Indian parliament on the basis of the population of the state. The ratio of the number of seats in the parliament and the population of the state is the same for all states in the country. As the population of Mizoram is one of the lowest in the country, the state is represented by one member in the Lok Sabha and one in the Rajya Sabha. The current Rajya Sabha MP is Shri Lalmingliana of the Mizo National Front. The sitting Lok Sabha MP is Shri C L Ruala of the INC. the Mizoram Lok Sabha Parliamentary constituency is reserved for a candidate belonging to Scheduled Tribe.
