Mizoram poll deferred


Aizawl, April 8 :

The election to the lone Lok Sabha seat in Mizoram has been deferred to April 11 in view of a three-day shutdown and poll boycott call by NGOs and students’ bodies, an official said Tuesday.

The polling was earlier scheduled to be held April 9.

“The election commission considering the prevailing situation in Mizoram, deferred the lone Lok Sabha polls in Mizoram to Friday. The commission issued this directive Monday night,” Mizoram Chief Electoral officer Aswani Kumar told IANS.

He said: “In view of the fresh directives of the election commission we are taking measures accordingly to hold the poll April 11 instead of April 9.”
