Following a resounding victory in the recent assembly elections, Lalduhoma, the chief ministerial candidate of Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), is set to take the oath of office on December 8.
In Monday’s Mizoram Assembly Elections, the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), a coalition of six regional parties, emerged victorious, securing a majority of seats. This win indicates the likelihood of Mizoram having a new chief minister after three decades, with the former IPS officer Lalduhoma.
After completing his education at North East Hill University (NEHU), Lalduhoma entered the Indian Police Service and held the position of security in-charge for the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Commencing his political journey in 1984, Lalduhoma entered politics after resigning from the service and joining the Congress Party. Later that year, he won election to the Lok Sabha.
However, in 1988, Lalduhoma made history by becoming the first Member of Parliament to be disqualified under the anti-defection law following his resignation from the Congress party.
Prior to the establishment of the six-party coalition, Lalduhoma, the aspiring chief minister, served as an MLA in 2003 representing a party he had established, the Zoram Nationalist Party.
