Mizoram: Campaign for by-poll to Tuirial Assembly seat ends

A frantic campaign for the Tuirial Assembly seat in north Mizoram finished on Wednesday at 6 p.m., with all contesting parties holding functions to bring their high-pitched campaigning to a stop.

The by-poll for the Tuirial seat in Kolasib district, which was caused by the death of incumbent Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) MLA, will be contested on October 30 alongside three parliamentary seats and 29 other assembly constituencies in other states.

According to election officials, voting will take place from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition, the state Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) P. Jawahar stated that at least one company of Central paramilitary forces will be deployed to state armed and unarmed forces.

The poll preparation is nearly complete, according to District Election Officer Dr. H. Lalthlangliana.

Moreover, he said that the final round of polling official training would take place on Thursday.

According to the official, there are 27 polling stations, and polling parties will be deployed on October 29 to their respective polling stations.

In the next seat election, a total of 17,911 electorates, including 9,092, will vote to decide the fate of four candidates.

The election department has already received 32 ballot papers, while 134 service votes that were already mailed have still to arrive.

On November 2, beginning at 8 a.m., the ballots will be counted at Government Kolasib College.

Mizoram People’s Forum (MPF), a church-backed poll monitor in the state, has filed one complaint each against Mizo National Front (MNF), Congress, and ZPM, according to Lalthlangliana.

Jawahar had earlier stated on Tuesday that at least 663 Bru voters from the Tripura transit camp are still registered among the 17,911 voters in the Tuirial assembly constituency.

He stated that there is no plan to make special accommodations or set up separate polling booths for Bru voters at this time and that only ordinary arrangements have been made thus far.

He further stated that in the approaching by-poll, Bru voters must travel at their own expense and vote in their respective polling booths of Zodin and Hortoki.

Following allegations that some political parties are attempting to assist Bru voters in Tripura, Mizoram’s apex student body, Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP), has urged all political parties not to facilitate special arrangements or provide assistance to Bru voters in Tripura to enable them to exercise their franchise in the upcoming by-poll.

The student body released a statement on Wednesday warning that if political parties did not respect their request, it would take appropriate action against those political parties.
