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.
