Monday, 26 February 2024 | PTI | Kohima

Mizoram's main opposition party, the Mizo National Front (MNF), will elect party leaders through a poll on March 15.

MNF's media cell secretary, Lallenmawia Jongte, on Sunday said that a meeting of the party's nomination committee on the previous day nominated incumbent president Zoramthanga as the official candidate for the top post in the party.

Earlier, 80-year-old Zoramthanga had announced that he and party senior vice president Tawnluia have decided to retire from active politics due to old age.

He had said that they had also written to the party nomination committee not to nominate them as the official candidates.

Nevertheless, the committee has unanimously decided to nominate Zoramthanga as the official candidate for the president's post again, while Tawnluia's request has been accepted because of his health, Jongte said.

The committee has also nominated former health minister Dr R Lalthangliana as the official candidate for the post of senior vice president, while MNF legislature party leader and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly, Lalchhandama Ralte, and former Lok Sabha member Vanlalzawma have been nominated for posts of party vice presidents, he said.
