Aizawl: The Mizoram Lok Sabha election 2019 results are on the verge of coming to end. From all the data we have received, the Mizo National Front (MNF), partners with North-East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), had been leading the vote count through most of the day, and their candidate, C Lalrosanga is on his way to take the only parliamentary seat from the state. Other candidates like Lalnghinglova Hmar, who is backed by Zoram People’s Movement and Congress, was a close second.
In 2009 and 2014, the Indian National Congress has been successful in securing its position in the state. However, back in 2004, the Mizo National Front had gained the seat from the state. Although Congress has had a stronghold in Mizoram for the past elections, it'll be interesting to see whether BJP can finally get a foothold in the Northeastern state given the growing popularity of the party in the state.
MNF's Pu Zothantlunga has been declared the winner in Aizawl West 1 By Poll elections, which were held simultaneously, with 10,363 votes.
