Poll pundits said this year's polls is a straight fight between the Mizo National Front (MNF) and Zoram People's Movement (ZPM). "It is a neck and neck fight between MNF and ZPM. While ZPM will do better in urban areas, MNF will win more seats in rural areas because of its strong bases there," Prof J. Doungel, who teaches political science in Mizoram University, was quoted by PTI as saying.

The ruling Mizo National Front (MNF), main opposition Zoram People's Movement (ZPM) and the Congress fielded candidates in all 40 seats. Meanwhile, the BJP is contesting 23 constituencies, while the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has nominated candidates in four assembly segments. Besides, there are 27 independent candidates.
