Maharashtra has a Maharashtra Legislature which consists of two Houses, the Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly) and the Vidhan Parishad (Legislative Council). As is the case in a parliamentary system, the government is formed by the party, alliance or group of assembly members who command the majority in the lower House. Lower House majority leader becomes the Chief Minister and selects the cabinet members from both Houses. In case an unelected person becomes the Chief Minister, they must be elected to either House within the following 6 months.

Council of MinistersEdit

On 12 November 2019, the state of Maharashtra had been put under President's Rule. On 23 November 2019 President of India Ram Nath Kovind signed the revocation of the central rule. On 26 November, Devendra Fadnavis resigned as chief minister due to lack of a majority in the legislative assembly.[1]

Two days later, on 28 November 2019, Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance leader Uddhav Thackeray was sworn in as chief minister of the state.
