Mizoram Assembly Election Results in 1972

Mizoram became a Union Territory on January 21, 1972 under the North-Eastern Areas (Reorganization) Act, 1971. Three months later, Mizoram held its first State Legislative Assembly Elections on April 18, 1972. A total of 125 candidates contested for the 30 seats of assembly constituencies. The Samyukta Socialist Party and the Indian National Congress contested 18 and 29 seats, respectively. The Mizo Labour Party (MLP) and the Mizo Union (MU), two unrecognized parties, contested 27 and 25 seats, respectively, while 56 independent candidates also contested. The Mizo Union formed the first ministry after winning 21 seats in the 30-member Union Territory legislature, headed by Shri Lawrence C. Chhunga, who became the first Chief Minister of Mizoram on May 13, 1972. Towards the beginning of 1975, the MU merged with the Indian National Congress, which captured six seats and was thereafter joined by 3 successful independent candidates. In May 1977, the Chhunga ministry resigned at the end of its five-year term. A seven-month President's rule followed. Meanwhile, S. P. Mukherjee became the Governor on April 24, 1972 and his tenure ended on June 12, 1974.
