The 1978 assembly election was won by the People's Conference (PC) headed by Brig. Thenphunga Sailo. But then the PC party split into PC (A) and PC (B) after five months and Mizoram was declared under President's Rule on November 10, 1978. The third general elections for the Mizoram assembly were held on April 24 and 27, 1979, and the People's Conference won 22 out of 30 seats, in which the PC (A) group, led by Brigadier T. Sailo, bagged 18. Sailo became Chief Minister for the second time, while the Congress with 15 seats, Janata with 2 and PC (B) with 4 seats, formed the opposition. Apparently, the defeat of the Congress was blamed on factors that brought about the downfall of Indira Gandhi in the sudden post-Emergency phase. But the national sentiment wasn't yet reflected in Mizoram politics and Sailo rode to the crest of popularity and this time he lasted his full tenure of five years. N. P. Mathur was the governor at that time.
