In the last council poll held in May 2017, Congress had won a landslide victory by securing 17 seats, while the Mizo National Front (MNF) and Mara Democratic Front (MDF) combine won 7 and one independent candidate had also been declared elected.  

Later, the MDF members joined BJP when the ethnic based party merged with the saffron party. 

The council came under BJP since June 2019 when all Congress members defected to the saffron party and it is now headed by N. Zakhai as Chief Executive Member (CEM). 

The BJP now has 17 members in the 25- member council, MNF (6) and Congress (2).
