Election Commission Reschedules Mizoram Election Counting Date to December 4th

The Election Commission of India has decided to modify the counting date for the General Election to the Legislative Assembly of Mizoram. Originally scheduled for December 3, 2023 (Sunday), the new counting date is now set for December 4, 2023 (Monday). This adjustment comes in response to numerous representations from diverse sources, advocating for a change in the counting day from a Sunday to another weekday.

The Election Commission has acknowledged the requests and considered the sentiments expressed by various quarters in favor of a different weekday for the counting process. This decision reflects the Commission’s responsiveness to the concerns raised and its commitment to accommodating the unique cultural and social aspects of Mizoram.
