Aizawl: Mizo National Front (MNF) president Zoramthanga will be sworn in as the new chief minister of Mizoram on Saturday. The swearing-in ceremony will take place at Raj Bhavan at 11 am on that day.
This was decided at a meeting held between a delegation of MNF led by Zoramthanga and state governor Kummanam Rajasekharan at Raj Bhavan in Aizawl on Wednesday.
Earlier, the chief minister-designate was invited by Rajasekharan for a meeting in which he staked claim to form the new government in the state.
In the recently-held elections, MNF secured a landslide victory by winning 26 of the 40 seats of the state assembly. The Congress party, who ruled the state for 10 years, was decimated to a mere five seats as per the poll results declared on December 11.
Meanwhile, Zoramthanga has made it clear that he will not include the lone BJP MLA, Buddha Dhan Chakma, in his ministry despite his party being a part of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA).
