Zoramthanga will be sworn in as Mizoram Chief Minister on Saturday this week. The decision was taken in a meeting between Governor Kummanam Rajasekharan and a delegation of the MNF party led by Zoramthanga at Raj Bhavan in Aizawl.

Earlier, the Governor invited the Chief Minister-designate Zoramthanga to the meeting to discuss over the formation of the new government in the state.  In the 40-seated Assembly, MNF has secured a landslide victory bagging 26 seats. The ruling Congress was reduced to 5 seats as per the poll results declared on 11th.

In the elections, BJP opened its account for the first time in the state by bagging a seat while the Congress managed to win five seats in the assembly polls held on November 28. The BJP opened its account with a lone seat from a non-Christian seat.

While Congress sees gains in three of the five states where polling was held, its last bastion in the northeast crumbled like a pack of cards. Five-time Chief Minister Lalthanhawla also lost both the seats he contested.

Importantly, Zoramthanga had served as the chief minister from December 1998 to December 2008.
