According to the Election Commission (EC), Zoramthanga himself also lost to ZPM’s Lalthansanga by 2,101 votes in the Aizawl East-1 seat. The MNF has won nine seats and is leading in one, while the opposition Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) secured a majority by bagging 27 seats in the 40-member House.
