Voting from the refugee camps

The members of the Bru community may not have visited their native land for two decades, but this time the Election Commission has made allowance for them to vote in the Mizoram Assembly elections. In an unprecedented move, the EC organised polling in the refugee camps in Tripura, where people from the Bru community exercised their franchise through postal ballots.

The Bru community has been dwelling in the refugee camps in Asapara, Naisingpara, Hazacherra, Kazkau, Kakchangpara, and Hamsapara for 15 years, after violent clashes with the Mizo community.There are 37,625 refugees from the Bru community living in the refugee camps, but out of them only 11,612 people have managed to get their names enrolled in the electoral list.

The EC conducted the polls as per the guidelines set by the Delhi High Court judgement in 1999, regarding the voting rights of the refugees. The tribal refugees voted for nine constituencies in the three western districts in Mizoram. A team of 86 officials, six observers and one special observer conducted the polls in the refugee camps.
