The repolling at one booth in Aizawl for the Mizoram assembly elections concluded at around 4 pm on Friday. A voter turnout of around 87 per cent was recorded.
Mizoram voted in a single-phase election to elect the 40-member assembly on Tuesday. The repolling at the Muallungthu voting centre in Mizoram’s Aizawl South-III constituency was necessitated as voting personnel did not clear the mock poll ahead of the voting on Tuesday.
Mizoram is among the five states going to polls ahead of the national elections next year. Along with Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana, the results of Mizoram polls would be declared on December 3 and would set the tone for the 2024 general elections.
Four candidates are in the fray in Aizawl South-III constituency. Ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) has fielded sitting MLA Lalnunmawia and Zoram People's Movement (ZPM) nominated debutant Baryl Vanneihsangi. Congress fielded Rosiamngheta, while Zaichhawna Hlawndo of the Zoramthar group is contesting as an independent.
Polling for the 40-member Mizoram assembly was held on Tuesday with a voter turnout of 80.43 per cent.
