Mizoram Presbyterian church leads campaign against electoral malpractice
AIZAWL, September 26, 2018: The largest Christian denomination of Mizoram – the Mizoram Presbyterian Church has issued an election statement which warns political parties and candidates not to make tall promises that cannot be delivered.
In the election decree which was issued last week, the Mizoram Presbyterian Church warned all political parties to field candidates who abide by the laws of the nation and that of the church.
"We expect all the candidates for the upcoming elections to abide by the laws of the land, must not make promises that cannot be delivered, and should abstain from collaborating with underground elements and other elements that will hamper the integrity and communal harmony of Mizoram," the church statement read.
Mizoram Presbyterian Church Synod is the largest Christian denomination in Mizoram.
It was a direct progeny of the Calvinistic Methodist Church (officially named the Presbyterian Church of Wales in 1928) in Wales.
