Just months ahead of the much-awaited Lok Sabha polls, Republic TV, in association with C-Voter, has come up with the fourth edition of the National Approval Ratings to determine how the elections could pan out should they be held in January.
Mizoram, which was one of the five states where assembly elections were held in 2018, has just one seat, and the present ruling party in the state, Mizo National Front (MNF), is projected to win it.
One of the seven sisters in North-East is also one of the very few place where both Congress-led UPA and BJP-led NDA aren't projected to win even a single seat. The MNF is projected to reign supreme with a vote share of 45.3%, while the UPA is projected to end up getting 38.8% votes. The NDA is only expected to win a mere 5% seats, which is not even half of what Others are projected.
Comparison to the previous editions:
MNF: Barely anything is projected to change for the MNF when compared to December edition of NAR. They are projected to retain the one and only seat while relinquishing 0.4% votes.
UPA: Just like the MNF, there seems to be no different in the projection for UPA. A 0.3% increase in vote share is the projection for the Congress-led alliance in the state of Mizoram.
NDA: The only difference projected for NDA from December is that their vote share will go down by 2.8%.
(The results of 2019 Lok Sabha elections may or may not reflect the results or scenarios of the state assembly elections, nevertheless, to establish where we stand at present, Republic TV and CVoter has presented the National Approval Ratings.)
