Who is Lalduhoma – ZPM’s chief ministerial face in Mizoram?

As the counting of votes unfolds in Mizoram, the focus is on the 74-year-old ex-IPS officer Lalduhoma and his party, the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM). The recent exit polls anticipates a potential victory for the ZPM in Mizoram, projecting them to secure 28-35 seats in the 40-member state assembly.

From IPS Officer to Political Leader

Lalduhoma’s journey into politics is extraordinary. Initially serving as an officer in the Indian Police Service (IPS) in Goa, he later became in-charge of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s security in the national capital. Following his service, Lalduhoma founded the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM), a political party that has now become a key player in Mizoram’s political landscape.

In 1984, Lalduhoma marked his entry into the Lok Sabha. However, his political trajectory faced a significant challenge when he became the first Member of Parliament to be disqualified under the anti-defection law.

In the year 2020, Lalduhoma faced disqualification as a Member of the Legislative Assembly for violating the anti-defection law. However, he made a triumphant comeback by winning the by-election for the Serchhip seat in 2021.

In the last assembly elections, Lalduhoma emerged as the chief ministerial candidate for the ZPM-led coalition. His resilience and dedication to Mizoram have not gone unnoticed, solidifying his position as a prominent figure in the state’s political discourse.

Mizoram Awaits Assembly Election Results 2023

As Mizoram eagerly awaits the assembly election results today, Lalduhoma’s leadership and the ZPM’s performance have the potential to reshape the state’s political landscape. The unfolding electoral outcome could mark a significant chapter in Mizoram’s political history.
