About Mizo National Front

   Mizo National Front History

Mizo National Front (MNF) is a regional political party in the state of Mizoram, India. MNF evolved from the Mizo National Famine Front, which was established by Pu Laldenga to fight against the working of the Indian central government towards the scarcity situation in the Mizo areas of the Assam state in 1959. The Election Symbol of the party is the "STAR".

Regarding political records, MNF won the only seat of Mizoram in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections. The Mizo National Front candidate Pu Vanlalzawma got 182 864 votes (52.46%). MNF abstained in the vote of confidence on 22 July 2008 to maintain distance from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and United Progressive Alliance.

According to news reports, In June, 2013, Mizo National Front which is the leading and oldest regional party in Mizoram revealed a "brand new" economic policy codenamed SEDP (socio-economic development programme) before assembly pole. The prime objective of the SEDP is to make Mizoram economically self-sufficient in agriculture and power. Chief of party, Zoramthanga divulges to have incorporated certain points from the 'Six Basic Needs', the 30-year-old policy of the Brig T Sailo's party Mizoram People's Conference (MPC) which remained displeased. The SEDP has been drafted taking into consideration certain points in the Garden Colony (of the MPC), the New Land Use Policy (of the Congress) and the Mizoram Intodelhna Programme (of the MNF) which are yet to be fulfilled. In the MNF's policies and programs, there is a provision of numerous administrative reforms, power decentralisation, demarcation of district boundary, land holding system, information technology, e-governance, public sector undertaking, cooperative movement, eradication of corruption, and health care.
