ZPM Leader Lalduhoma to Take Oath as New Mizoram Chief Minister on Dec 8

Aizawl: Lalduhoma, leader of the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) legislature party, is set to be sworn in as the new Chief Minister of Mizoram on Friday, according to a Raj Bhavan official. The swearing-in ceremony for Lalduhoma and his council of ministers is scheduled for 11 AM at the Raj Bhavan.

Earlier in the day, Lalduhoma met with Governor Hari Babu Khambampati at the Raj Bhavan and formally staked claim to form the government, following which the governor extended an invitation to him.

Having secured 27 out of the 40 seats in the Mizoram Assembly election held on November 7, ZPM emerged victorious on Monday, defeating the Mizo National Front (MNF) led by Zoramthanga.

On Thursday, the ZPM advisory body is set to meet Lalduhoma to discuss the structure of the new government. Eddy Zosangliana Colney, the general secretary of the ZPM media cell, stated that the meeting will make final decisions on the formation of the council of ministers and other pertinent issues.

Lalduhoma, a former IPS officer who previously served as the security in-charge of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, was unanimously elected as the leader of the Zoram People’s Movement legislature party during a meeting of newly elected legislators on Tuesday evening. The party’s working president, K Sapdanga, was elected as the deputy leader.
