Branches of governmentEdit

ExecutiveEdit

As with other Indian states, the head of state of Haryana is the Governor, appointed by the President of India on the advice of the central government. His or her post is largely ceremonial. The Chief Minister is the head of government and is vested with most of the executive powers to run the 22 districts of Haryana across its six divisions.

LegislativeEdit

Chandigarh is the capital of Punjab and houses the Haryana Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly) and the secretariat. The city also serves as the capital of Haryana, and is a union territory of India.

The present Legislative Assembly of Haryana is unicameral, consisting of 90 members of the legislative assembly (MLAs). Its term is five years, unless dissolved earlier.[1]

JudicialEdit

The Punjab and Haryana High Court, located in Chandigarh, has jurisdiction over the whole state.[2]
