Leader of the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), Lalduhoma, who is also the party’s nominee for Chief Minister, will meet with the state governor today to assert his claim to form the government after winning the Mizoram Assembly elections. Today at approximately 10:30 am, Lalduhoma will meet Governor Hari Babau Kambhampati at Raj Bhawan in Aizawl. In Mizoram, where results were released on December 4, ZPM won 27 of the 40 assembly constituencies, registering a landslide victory.
After leading ZPM to a landslide victory in Mizoram, party chief Lalduhoma, who is set to take over from Zoramthanga as the next chief minister, said the state’s youth were fed up with the incumbent, the Mizo National Front (MNF), and wanted a new regime to come in with fresh ideas and principles.
“This is the blessing of God & the blessing of the people for which I am very happy & thankful. We had been expecting (such a big win) right from the previous year. We know the mood of the people. We know that they are in our favour…There is no contender at all…They had already selected me last year. It was already announced to the people that if ZPM returns to power Lalduhoma is going to be the CM.
