The Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) declared former MP Lalduhoma as its chief ministerial candidate for the Mizoram Assembly elections to be held later this year.
The ZPM is a pre-poll electoral alliance formed by various parties of the State. Lalduhoma is the president of ZNP.
The ZPM was formed in August last year initially by Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP), Mizoram People’s Conference (MPC) and Zoram Exodus Movement (ZEM) and later joined by Zoram Decentralization Front (ZDF), Zoram Reformation Front (ZRF) and Mizoram People’s Party (MPP)
MPP is the last political party to join the confluence on February 22 last to make it a six-party alliance.
Notably, MPC has one sitting MLA in the present government.
Addressing a function to mark the announcement of chief ministerial candidate on Tuesday at the Chanmari YMA hall in Aizawl, the former MP from Mizoram Lalduhoma pledged ‘reformation and development’ of Mizoram by bringing dramatic changes to the state’s political system.
He said the ZPM, if it came to power, would establish a ‘people’s government’.
The IPS officer-turned-politician said he would give his best to become an ideal Chief Minister and fulfil the aspirations of the people.
The 69-year-old leader from Chawlhhmun said Aizawl will be declared as a ‘city of churches’ if the ZPM is voted to power.
