British Prime Minister Theresa May Tells Lawmakers She Would Quit Before 2022 Election

Theresa May held a closed-door meeting with lawmakers. (File)

London, UK: 

British Prime Minister Theresa May told her MPs Wednesday she plans to quit before the 2022 election, as she seeks their support in a confidence vote, a lawmaker said.

“She said she does not intend to lead the 2022 election,” Conservative MP Alec Shelbrooke told journalists after the closed-door meeting, confirming other reports.

Zoramthanga To Take Oath As Mizoram Chief Minister On Sunday

Zoramthanga had served as the chief minister from December 1998 to December 2008.


Mizoram Governor Kummanam Rajasekharan on Wednesday formally invited MNF president Zoramthanga to form the government in the state. He will be sworn-in as the chief minister at the governor house at 12 noon on Saturday, the local administration informed. It is not clear if his council of ministers will take oath with him.

Two-time Chief Minister Zoramthanga’s party stunned the ruling Congress as it bagged 26 seats in the 40-member assembly.  

The MNF is back in power after 10 years and its victory is being considered an early Christmas by party workers.

“I had predicted over 29 seats for MNF and less than 10 for Congress. My prediction has come true. Voters were fed up of the mismanagement of the Congress. The liquor issue also turned the church and civil society against them. Mizoram is a Christian state and we are a compact society so there is no space for BJP ideology,” MNF chief Zoramthanga told NDTV on Tuesday.

Zoramthanga had served as the chief minister from December 1998 to December 2008.

Exit polls that had indicated a hung assembly were also proved wrong and the old poll arithmetic of change of power every 10 years won.

The BJP opened its account for the first time in the state by bagging a seat while the Congress managed to win five seats in the assembly polls held on November 28.

While Congress sees gains in three of the five states where polling was held, its last bastion in the northeast crumbled like a pack of cards. Five-time Chief Minister Lalthanhawla also lost both the seats he contested.

The age-old party fell behind the newly floated Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) that won eight seats. The BJP opened its account with a lone seat from a non-Christian seat.

“I don’t know what went wrong. I am disappointed. I think I underestimated the ZPM,” Lal Thanhawla told NDTV.

Jyotiraditya Scindia To NDTV On Chief Minister Query

Madhya Pradesh: Jyotiraditya Scindia said the party will decide who would be the chief minister

In the middle of a tug of war over the chief minister’s post in Madhya Pradesh, Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia today made it clear he was ready for the job, if his party were to give it to him. “It would be an honour to serve as chief minister,” Mr Scindia told NDTV, shortly after the Congress staked claim to form the next government in Madhya Pradesh.

The Congress has narrowly won Madhya Pradesh, emerging the largest party but falling two short of a majority, a shortfall that it has made up after Mayawati pledged her support to the party “to keep the BJP out”.

The Congress now faces a tough choice between Kamal Nath and Jyotiraditya Scindia for the post of chief minister.

“I am a servant of the people and will always be. What form that will take, be it through Madhya Pradesh or as minister of central government or chief whip, it is for my party to decide,” Mr Scindia, 47, said.

Seen accepting congratulatory garlands, he explained that he had pledged not to do so until the BJP had been ousted.

In the afternoon the Congress’s big three — Kamal Nath, Digvijaya Singh and Mr Scindia — went together to meet Governor Anandiben Patel and stake claim to form government.

Telegraphing his readiness to take charge, Mr Scindia has, since yesterday, underscored that the Congress won magnificently in the Gwalior-Chambal region, which is his stronghold.

“Almost 35 per cent of the total votes that the Congress won are from the Gwalior-Chambal region,” he said, repeating what he has frequently said in interviews since yesterday: “I thank the people of Gwalior-Chambal for voting Congress.”

How Will The Leadership Challenge To British Prime Minister Theresa May Work?

British Prime Minister Theresa May could be toppled if 158 of her 315 lawmakers vote against her.


Lawmakers in British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party on Wednesday triggered a confidence vote in her leadership over Britain’s planned divorce from the European.

Below is an explanation of how the leadership challenge works under the ruling Conservative Party’s rules:

How Was It Triggered?

A challenge was triggered after 15 per cent of the Conservative members of parliament (MPs) wrote letters demanding a confidence vote to the chairman of the party’s “1922 Committee”, which represents those lawmakers who have no government jobs.

The Conservatives have 315 MPs, so 48 were needed to write such letters for the vote to be called.

When Will It Happen?

Graham Brady, the chairman of the 1922 Committee, said a ballot would be held between 1800 GMT and 2000 on Wednesday, Dec. 12, in committee room 14 of the House of Commons.

The votes will be counted immediately afterwards and an announcement made on Wednesday evening.

What Happens During A Confidence Vote?

All Conservative MPs can vote. Theresa May would need a simple majority of the total votes registered in order to win. If all elected lawmakers cast their ballots, that would currently mean 158 votes.

If May wins, she remains in office and cannot be challenged again for 12 months. If she loses, she must resign and is barred from standing in the leadership election that follows.

However a significant mutiny could make her leadership untenable.

What Happens If May Loses?

There will be a leadership contest to decide her replacement. Theresa May replacement will become prime minister, but a general election will not automatically be triggered.

If several candidates come forward, a secret vote is held among Conservative MPs to whittle down the field. The candidate with the fewest votes is removed and Conservative lawmakers vote again. The process is repeated, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, until only two candidates remain.

These two candidates are then put to a postal ballot of the wider Conservative Party membership. Participants need to have been party members for more than three months.

When David Cameron decided to step down as prime minister and Conservative leader after the EU referendum in 2016, five candidates came forward. The field was narrowed to May and then-junior minister Andrea Leadsom, but she pulled out before members voted, leaving May to become leader unopposed.

Congress To Win Chhattisgarh, But Who’ll Be Chief Minister?

The foremost contender for the chief ministerial post is 57-year-old Bhupesh Baghel.


The Congress may be inching towards a landslide win in Chhattisgarh, but its choice to replace the BJP’s Raman Singh as chief minister remains anybody’s guess.

There are a few contenders for the top position, the foremost among them being Chhattisgarh Congress president Bhupesh Baghel. The 57-year-old politician, who credits his party’s good showing to its fight against the “anti-poor” policies of the Raman Singh government, claims he is ready to fulfil any responsibility that the Congress high command hands him.

A seasoned legislator, Mr Baghel served in the Digvijaya Singh cabinet when Chhattisgarh was still a part of Madhya Pradesh and later in the Ajit Jogi government. He was appointed as the party’s state unit chief in 2014.

The other contenders for the post are TS Singh Deo, leader of the opposition in the previous assembly, and Tamradhwaj Sahu, the lone Congress parliamentarian from the state. Mr Deo had earlier told NDTV that the Congress leadership would decide on the chief ministerial candidate after speaking to the elected legislators.

Nevertheless, the Chhattisgarh Congress is content with celebrating an unexpectedly stunning election victory for now. Surrounded by jubilant workers, Mr Baghel told NDTV that the “wrong policies of the BJP government” had sealed its fate in the state. He said Congress workers received a lot of support from the masses in their campaign against Raman Singh, a formidable leader and three-time chief minister, because they were fighting for a “real cause”.

“This is a victory of the people. We fought the polls against the BJP’s anti-poor agenda,” he said. “Be it issues related to issuance of ration cards or faulty procurement of foodgrain, we have been taking up the issues of the poor, the underprivileged and the Adivasis.”

The Congress was leading in 68 seats in Chhattisgarh’s 90-member assembly at 2 am on Tuesday, leaving the ruling party with a paltry 15. By comparison, the BJP had won 49 seats in the 2013 elections to the Congress’ 39.

Election Results 2018 Ex Congress minister Buddha Dhan Chakma won single BJP seat in mizoram

Mizoram Election Results 2018: इस पुराने कांग्रेसी नेता ने रखी बीजेपी की 'लाज', मिजोरम में पहली बार खोला खाता

बीजेपी के लिए इकलौती सीट जीतने वाले पूर्व कांग्रेसी मंत्री बुद्ध धन चकमा (Buddha Dhan Chakma)

खास बातें

  1. मिजोरम में खुला बीजेपी का खाता
  2. पूर्व कांग्रेस के मंत्री ने जीती सीट
  3. कांग्रेस के मंत्री भी रह चुके हैं बुद्ध धन

नई दिल्ली: मिजोरम विधानसभा चुनाव परिणाम 2018 (Mizoram Assembly Election Results 2018) में मिजो नेशनल फ्रंट (एमएनएफ) ने कांग्रेस को पटखनी देते हुए बड़े अंतर जीत हासिल कर ली. एमएनएफ (MNF) ने बहुमत हासिल करते हुए 26 सीटों पर कब्जा किया और सरकार बनाने का दावा ठोका. जबकि कांग्रेस बुरी तरह से हारी और सिर्फ 5 सीटों पर ही जीत हासिल कर सकी. 10 साल बाद आई एमएनएफ पार्टी को 21 सीटों का फायदा हुआ, जबकि कांग्रेस ने 29 सीट गवाएं. इन सबमें सबसे चौंकाने वाली बात यह रही कि पूर्व कांग्रेस नेता बुद्ध धन चकमा (Buddha Dhan Chakma) ने पार्टी से इस्तीफा देकर बीजेपी ज्वाइन किया और फिर जीत हासिल करते हुए भाजपा के नाम एक ऐतिहासिक जीत दर्ज करवाई. जी हां, बीजेपी ने पहली बार मिजोरम राज्य में खाता खोला है.

बीजेपी के ‘चाणक्य’ अमित शाह को ऐसे मिला ‘चौथा झटका’, कांग्रेस मुक्त भारत का सपना हुआ चकनाचूर!


मिजोरम में भारतीय जनता पार्टी (BJP) के एकमात्र विजेता बुद्ध धन चकमा (Buddha Dhan Chakma) ने टुईचॉन्ग (Tuichawng) सीट से 11419 वोट प्राप्त किए. उन्होंने बहुमत हासिल करने वाली पार्टी मिजो नेशनल फ्रेंट (Mizo National Front) के नेता रसिक मोहन चकमा को 1594 वोटों से हराया. रसिक मोहन ने 9825 वोट हासिल किए थे. वहीं निवर्तमान रूलिंग पार्टी के नेता कलि कुमार टोंगचान्ग्या तीसरे नंबर पर रहे और चौथे स्थान पर नेशनल पीपुल्स पार्टी के डोयमोय देवेंग चकमा को सिर्फ 250 वोट मिला. कुल मिलाकर देखा जाए तो चकमा समुदाय में अच्छी पकड़ की वजह से बुद्ध धन चकमा को फायदा मिला.


बीजेपी में दो महीने पहले आए बुद्ध धन चकमा ने 16 अक्टूबर 2018 को कांग्रेस पार्टी से अलविदा लिया था. मिजोरम की बीजेपी ईकाई के अध्यक्ष प्रो. जॉन वी हलुना ने बताया था कि बुद्ध विधानसभा चुनाव में टुईचॉन्ग (Tuichawng) सीट से चुनाव लड़ेंगे, क्योंकि यहां उनकी दावेदारी ज्यादा मजबूत है. बुद्ध धन के बारे में बात करें तो उन्होंने 21 अगस्त, 2017 को मंत्रिपरिषद से इस्तीफा दे दिया था, क्योंकि चकमा समुदाय के कुछ छात्रों संग देशभर के मेडिकल कॉलेजों द्वारा प्रवेश के लिए भेदभाव किया गया; जबकि राज्य कोटा के अनुसार वह सभी एमबीबीएस के लिए योग्य थे.

“India Has Stakes In Afghanistan, Its Cooperation Needed”: Pak Minister

Pakistan PM Imran Khan had said that peace could not be established in Afghanistan through military power


Probably for the first time, Pakistan has acknowledged that India has stakes in Afghanistan and its cooperation is necessary for the peace process in the war-torn country.

Speaking in the National Assembly yesterday, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Pakistan alone could not bring peace in Afghanistan as it was a “shared responsibility” of regional countries.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that peace could not be established in Afghanistan through military power. Today the US, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Taliban also wanted a solution through dialogue,” The Express Tribune quoted Mr Qureshi as saying.

“Some meetings have taken place [among key stakeholders] for establishment of peace in Afghanistan. India also has stakes in Afghanistan and its cooperation will also be needed,” Mr Qureshi said.

The US has indicated that it plans to give a role to India in Afghanistan, whereas Pakistan’s stance over the years was quite clear that India had no role to play in Afghanistan.

Pakistan perceives India’s development contributions in Afghanistan as part of New Delhi’s strategic encirclement policy.

He said US president Donald Trump in a letter to Prime Minister Khan had asked Pakistan to help and facilitate the peace process in Afghanistan which Mr Qureshi said Pakistan was already doing.

Five-Time Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla Loses Both Seats, His Congress Trails

76-year-old Lal Thanhawla has been ruling the state since December 2008.


Five-time Chief Minister of Mizoram, Lal Thanhawla, who contested from Champhai South and Serchhip, has lost both the seats. While he lost Champhai to Mizo National Front’s (MNF) TJ Lalnuntluanga, Serchhip was snatched by Zoram People’s Movement’s (ZPM) chief ministerial candidate Lalduhoma.

The 76-year-old Congress leader has been ruling the state since December 2008. In the 2013 assembly elections, he became the chief minister for the fifth time, a record in Mizoram.

The ruling Congress was aiming for a third consecutive victory, but the MNF, the main opposition and an ally of the BJP at the centre, has left the party behind in Mizoram, among the last few states and the only one in the northeast with the Congress. The Congress is ahead in only five.

The MNF, which has been out of power for 10 years, has been optimistic about the win. Their hope is hinged on the fact that the governments change every 10 years in Mizoram.

Assembly Elections 2018 Live Results : Mizoram

“I have a strong belief that I don’t need any other party and particularly the BJP to form government,” said MNF president and former Mizoram chief minister Zoramthanga, who ran the state between 1998 and 2008.

When asked about the anti-incumbency wave in Mizoram, Mr Thanhawla had said, “Not at all. Only MNF is feeling anti-incumbency factor. They don’t have anything to point fingers at me — no scandal, no misuse (of funds). How can they say anti-incumbency wind is blowing in Mizoram? It’s only their wishful thinking.”

The state with a population of about 10 lakh is seen by the BJP as the “final frontier” in the northeast as it is in power in all other states of the region — either by winning polls or aligning with regional parties.

An aggregate of the exit polls had predicted the MNF notching 18 seats, the Congress 16 and the others six, while not giving the BJP even a single win. The MNF and Congress contested from all the 40 seats in the state, and an optimistic BJP fought in 39.
