Election Commission of Mizoram



About Election Commission of Mizoram

Mizoram is among the seven northeastern states of India that lie far-flung from the Indian mainland. It was carved out of the state of Assam on February 20, 1987 when the residents of the Mizo hills demanded unique statehood for themselves, owing to their endemic ethnicity in the region. Mizoram became the 23rdstate of the Indian Union.

The newly formed state was a comparatively smaller one, having a population of just about a million. Therefore, its legislative assembly could manage only the minimum number of seats (sixty) required for a state to constitute a legislative assembly.

History and formation

The State Election Commission of Mizoram was formed in the year 1992 as an autonomous body under the helm of the state government of Mizoram. With this, the local, urban and rural electoral procedures were handed over to it by the Election Commission of India (ECI). The ideology behind the formation of the State Election Commission was to ensure that elections in the state are conducted on unbiased lines, with absolute fairness and transparency in every procedure and action involved in the electoral framework.
