Aizawl: Mizoram Governor Lt. General M M
Lakhera on Wednesday could not vote in the 19-ward Aizawl Municipal
Council as his name was not on the voters list.

When Lakhera did not find his name he returned to Raj
Bhavan without casting his vote, officials said.
There was 60 per cent turnout in the election which
was held peacefully, the sources said.

The voters sealed the fate of 45 candidates which
included nominees from the ruling Congress and the Zoram
Nationalust Party (ZNP) alliance and the opposition Mizo
National Front (MNF) and the Mizoram People`s Conference (MPC)
combine.
The BJP and the NCP fielded four and one candidates
respectively while two independent candidates also tried their
luck in the polls.
