Administration of Mizoram

Mizoram's political history dates back to mid 1950s when the Mizos demanded the status of statehood to the tribal dominated region of Assam Districts. The revolution continued for over three decades and finally an accord was signed between the Mizo National Front (MNF) and the Union Government on 30th June, 1986.

Mizoram Government

Mizoram attained its statehood on 20th February, 1987. Rajiv Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of India, inaugurated the state and Hiteshwar Saikia was appointed as Governor of Mizoram. The first State Assembly was instituted in March, 1987 with a total membership of forty. Since its formation, there have been five times assemblies in the state. Zoramthanga is the current Chief Minister of Mizoram. He is the leader of Mizo National Front (MNF). He served as the Chief Minister of Mizoram from December 1998 to December 2008, for two consecutive terms.

Like all other states of India the state of Mizoram is governed by a Chief Minister and a council of other ministers responsible to an elected unicameral legislature and by a Governor, appointed by the president of India. The Governor is the head of the state but his role is largely ceremonial.

Mizoram Legislative Assembly

The Mizoram Legislative Assembly has 40 members who are elected by means of a popular vote conducted by the election commission of India. The judicial seat of the state i.e. the High Court of Mizoram is located at Guwahati with a bench at Aizawl, the capital of the state.
