Aizawl Sept 22-2020: The Mizoram People’s Conference and newly formed party- People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram(PRISM) will merge on 6th October 2020, a party leader informed.
Both the parties failed to win a seat in the 2018 assembly election and lost in the Lok Sabha polls in 2019 and rural-urban body elections this year. This might be the reason why the parties want to merge.
“The joint meeting of leaders of both MPC and PRISM on Monday unanimously agreed to sign final merger pact on October 6,” The Mizoram Post quoted PRISM general secretary Lalrinzuala Chawngthu as saying.
He mentioned that the new name of the party and sharing of portfolios for the interim period would be finalised during the signing of the final agreement on 6th October 2020.
