Aizawl: Mizoram Chief Electoral Officer K Riachho on Monday said that the state election department was ready to hold the by-polls to the Chalfilh assembly seat on February 23 and the summary revision of rolls would be published tomorrow.

Addressing a press conference here, Riachho said that provisional electorate of the Chalfilh assembly seat was 10,754.

The security situation in the constituency, dominated by the Hmar community, and by and large controlled by the Hmar People`s Convention-Democrats, would be assessed by the state home department, he said.
He said that the election model code of conduct was in place from Friday, the day the Election Commission of India announced the elections.

The Chalfilh seat was lying vacant after the demise of Parliamentary Secretary Chawngtinthanga of the ruling Congress on September 16 last year.
