H Biakzauva named as deputy speaker of Mizoram state Assembly

Aizawl: Ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) lawmaker H Biakzauva was unanimously elected Deputy Speaker of the State Assembly during the ongoing budget session on Wednesday.

Assembly Speaker Lalrinliana Sailo said the Lawngtlai East Constituency MLA was elected unopposed as no other candidate had filed nominations.
The candidature of H. Biakzauva for the post of Deputy Speaker was approved at the MNF Legislature Party meeting on January 30, chaired by Chief Minister and Party President Zoramathanga.
The election of the deputy speaker was necessitated by the resignation of Lalrinawma, who resigned as deputy speaker and was later sworn in as a cabinet minister in December last year.
As decided by the Business Advisory Committee (BAC), Chief Minister Zormathanga, who also holds the finance portfolio, will present the state’s annual budget for the financial year 2023-2024 on February 13.

The budget session, which began on February 7, will end on February 28.
