Aizawl: The preparations for the by-election to Aizawl North-III assembly seat to be held tomorrow has been completed as all polling parties reached their respective polling stations today, Mizoram Election department officials said.
An electorate of 17,582 would exercise franchise in 19 polling stations from 7 AM till 4 PM tomorrow to decide the fates of three candidates - Lal Thanzara of the ruling Congress, K Vanlalvena of Mizo National Front (MNF) and Lalduhawma of National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
While the Congress and the Mizoram People's Conference (MPC) forged a pre-poll alliance and the NDA comprised of the Zoram Nationalist Party (ZNP) and the BJP, the MNF contested without any alliance.
Four polling officials would be deployed in each polling station making the total number of polling officials at 76.
The by-poll was necessitated by the resignation of former Health minister and the present Congress nominee Lal Thanzara on August 18 last due to allegations of 'conflict of interests'.
