Aizawl: Church leaders here have objected to the dates fixed for polling and counting of votes for the Mizoram Assembly elections, saying it will cause inconvenience to community members and hurt their sentiments.  



A four-member team of the church leaders led by Rev Lalzuithanga, Executive Secretary of the Mizoram Synod of the Presbyterian Church of India, met state Chief Electoral Officer Ashwini Kumar and told him that on December 4, the voting day, a council meeting of the highest authority of the church is to be held.

Rev Lalthangmawia, statistician of the Mizoram Synod, said, “We informed the CEO that if the polling is held on December 4 as announced by the Election Commission, not less than 3,000 people, including priests, church leaders and delegates from all over the state, would not be able to cast their votes.”
