Aizawl : BJP swept the elections to retain office in the Mara Autonoe moues District Council ( MADC ) of Mizoram by bagging 41 of the 99 village councils Thursday – a victory seen as significant in the Christian majority northeastern state that elects a new assembly later this year .

The MADC area is made up of 99 village councils and 492 seats , 33 % of which are reserved for women . Bigger villages have seven members ( seats ) , while smaller villages may have five or three members / seats . Village councils are the equivalent of panchayats .

One reason for BJP’s success is the resignation of minister of state K Beachhead on December 13 last year . Beachhead was asked to step down by CM Zoramthanga following the defection of some MNF members of district council considered to be close to the former , which resulted in the toppling of the MNF Congress coalition in the MADC and putting BJP in office .

Political analysts predict BJP , which has only one legislator in Mizoram , could win more seats when elections to the 40 – member state assembly is held this year . Beach is most likely to join BJP and contest from the Siaya assembly lee seat .
