The Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly is the unicameral state legislature of Arunachal Pradesh state in north-eastern India. The seat of the Legislative Assembly is at Itanagar, the capital of the state. The Legislative Assembly comprises 60 Members of Legislative Assembly[4] directly elected from single-seat constituencies.

History[edit]

On 29 December 1969, the Agency Council, an apex advisory body for the governance of the North-East Frontier Agency (present-day Arunachal Pradesh), came into existence, with the Governor of Assam as its chairman. The Agency Council was replaced by the Pradesh Council on 2 October 1972. On 15 August 1975 the Pradesh Council was converted to the Provisional Legislative Assembly. Initially, the Legislative Assembly comprised 33 members, of which, 30 members were directly elected from single-seat constituencies and 3 members were nominated by the Union government. On attainment of the statehood on 20 February 1987, the number was raised to 60.[5]

Present assembly[edit]

Assembly elections were held in 2014. The Indian National Congress emerged as the single largest party with 42 seats in the 60-seat legislature and Nabam became the Chief Minister.[6] The assembly was suspended and the government was dissolved by the President Pranab Mukherjee on 26 January 2016.[7] Also Congress Government lost its 30 leaders as 30 MLAs defected to regional party People's Party of Arunachal.All of the 30 MLAs returned to Congress on 16 July and Mr. Pema Khandu was sworn in as the Chief Minister. On 16th September, 43 MLAs from the ruling party, under the CM phema Kandu, left congress to join People's Party of Arunachal party, in alliance with BJP. Though Mr.Phema Kandu is still the Chief minister, it is soon expected that either a coalition government will be formed with BJP as the speaker of assembly has also changed sides with the CM, or that the Indian(central)cabinet will dissolve the state assembly for a fresh general elections. Er.Tenzing Norbu Thongdok is the speaker of his Assembly and Alo Libang is deputy speaker.
