While MPCC president TN Haokip retained his seat from Saikot AC for the fourth time a sitting Cabinet Minister in the last Ministry T Manga Vaiphei lost to former Deputy Speaker TT Haokip from the BJP in Henglep AC.

Sitting MLA from Thanlon AC, Vungzagin Valte who has also defected to the BJP from the Congress retained his seat as well.

Churachandpur saw heavyweights biting the dust but sees no fresh faces as the two replacements too are well known faces in the State's political circle with both having their share of experience in the previous Assemblies.
