As India has just got over with the 16th Lok Sabha polls, people of Manipur would hope for some pressing issues like the AFSPA (Armed Forces Special Powers Act) to be repealed, compromise on international borders, insurgency, expansion of policy discourse on minority in India, protection of women and children, inefficient healthcare etc, to be considered and taken care of.

There are two parliamentary constituencies in the state, namely Inner Manipur and Outer Manipur. The latter constituency is reserved for Scheduled Tribe (ST) candidates. Having a unicameral form of government, the state sends only one member to the Rajya Sabha and two members to the Lok Sabha.

Ruling Party and the Constitution

Though the Governor is the constitutional head of the state, the real executive powers lie in the hands of the Chief Minister and his Cabinet. The current Governor of Manipur is Vinod Duggal. The incumbent Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh, representing the Congress party, has been in the position since 2002.

Election History

Since its formation in 1972, the state of Manipur has seen a race of governance between the Congress and the Manipur People's Party (MPP). The state has been imposed with the President's rule ten times since 1963. The first Chief Minister of the state was MPP's Muhammad Alimuddin. Following its first State Election victory, the party went on to form the government in 1974 and 1992. The incumbent Congress has governed the state for ten terms since its formation, with Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh presiding over his third consecutive term.

The upcoming polls will be the state's 15th Lok Sabha elections. The first elections were held in 1951, clinched by the Congress. The INC's winning streak was broken in 1967 by the Communist Party of India. However, the CPI's sweet victory didn't last long, as the INC made a winning return in the 1971 polls. It was in 1998 that the CPI managed to break through the Congress' stronghold. In 1999, the BJP clinched a victory, but could not make a mark in the state bringing the Congress back into power in the 2004 elections. In the 2009 General Elections, Congress bagged both the constituencies, with a total of 13,39,399 valid votes.

The Lok Sabha elections took place on 9 and 17 April 2014 in the state.

Political Parties
  • Indian National Congress (INC): The Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee is a wing of the INC for the state of Manipur. Headquartered in Imphal, the party is headed by Gaikhangam.

  • Manipur People's Party (MPP): Recognised as the oldest party in Manipur, the MPP is one of the many factions of the INC. After its poll debacle in the 2009 elections where it lost the only seat it contested, the MPP got into an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to withstand the Congress monopoly. The MPP ruled the state for two terms. However, unfortunately in 2013, the party was unrecognised as a Regional Party.

  • Nationalist Congress Party (NCP): Formed in 1999, the NCP has strong functioning units all across the country. Led by Radhabinod Koijam, the party won the Manipur State Elections in 2007.

The other parties up for the Lok Sabha race are All India Trinamool Congress (AITMC) and the Communist Party of India (CPI).

Prominent Political Leaders
  • Okram Ibobi Singh: The present Chief Minister of Manipur, Okram has been a revolution for the Congress party in the state. He has held this position of governance since 7 October 2002. A gold medalist in Chemistry, Okram's stellar performance in the 2012 State Elections, where he secured absolute majority helped Congress stamp its dominance in the state. In 2008, he escaped an assassination bid by rebels, over the issue of insurgency in Manipur.

  • Radhabinod Koijam: Currently the President of the Nationalist Congress Party in Manipur, Koijam served as the Chief Minister of the state in 2001. However, his time at the office was a short-lived one, as the coalition which he was leading fell in the same year. He was succeeded by Okram Ibobi Singh.
