The ZPM, a relatively young political party, swept the state assembly polls on Monday ousting the incumbent Mizo National Front (MNF) headed by outgoing chief minister Zoramthanga by bagging 27 out of 40 seats, according to poll results announced by the Election Commission.
The MNF reduced its tally from 26 in 2018 to 10 this time, while the BJP secured two seats.
The Congress managed to secure only a single seat against five in 2018 polls.
Polling for the 40-member assembly polls was held on November 7, where more than 82 per cent of over 8.57 lakh voters cast their votes.
