The Congress has swept rural body elections within the Lai Autonomous District Council (LADC) in southern Mizoram by winning 287 seats and forming a majority in 57 out of 93 Village Councils. Some of the regional parties were meanwhile decimated in the polls with neither the Mizoram People’s Conference nor the Zoram Nationalist Party winning any seat.
Even the best performing regional party, the Mizo National Front, won only 42 seats and has been able to form a majority in only 6 Village Councils.
The MNF’s tally is however worse than even independent candidates’, who cornered 116 seats to form a majority in 20 Village Councils.
