MNF bounces back to power in Mizoram

Aizawl: The Mizo National Front (MNF) on Tuesday scripted a spectacular victory in Mizoram, uprooting the Congress in its last bastion in the Northeast to return to power after 10 years.

The MNF won 26 seats in the 40-member assembly, a gain of 21 seats since 2013. The Congress managed to bag only five seats

compared to 34 seats it won in the 2013 assembly elections. No party in the state has so far been able to form government thrice in a row since 1987 when Mizoram became a full-fledged state.
