Aizawl: Mizoram Kohran Horite Committee (MKHC) and several leaders of the church organization once again approached the state’s Chief Electoral Officer Madhup Vyas on Thursday. Here they demanded to change the day of counting of elections. These people went ahead with their demand and said that the date of counting of votes should be changed to December 4 or 5 instead of December 3. Along with MKHC leaders, representatives of political parties, civil organizations, student organizations and Muzoram People’s Forum were also present there. Along with this, political parties and other organizations have separately placed their demands before the Chief Electoral Officer.

Sunday is the holy day of Christianity.

This is the third time MKHC leaders have appealed to the Election Commission to change the counting date. Let us tell you that the date of counting of votes falls on Sunday, which is considered a very special day for the Christian community. MKHC Joint Secretary Lalanluma Kavalani said that Officer Vyas has told him that he has sent this demand letter to the Election Commission. Let us tell you that in the total population of Mizoram, the number of people of Christian religion is highest. About 87 percent of people in Mizoram are Christians. Sunday, the day the votes are counted, is a holy day for Christianity. People have to worship on this day. In such a situation, all the people are demanding a change in the election dates.

Counting of votes in all the five states is to be done simultaneously.

Let us tell you that the Election Commission had announced the election schedule of five states Mizoram, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana and Chhattisgarh. Voting for the 40-member Mizoram Assembly will be held in a single phase on November 7, while the votes of all five states will be counted on December 3. Earlier, there has been a demand to change the dates of Rajasthan assembly elections. Now a similar demand is being made from Mizoram as well. At present, counting of votes in all the five states has to be done simultaneously. In such a situation, it is to be seen whether the Election Commission accepts the demand of the people of Mizoram or the votes of all the states will be counted together.
