List of constituencies of Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly

The state of Tamil Nadu has operated a unicameral system since 1 November 1986.[1] The Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly alone has powers to legislate laws covering state subjects. As of 2011, it comprises members from 235 constituencies, of whom 234 are democratically elected using the First-past-the-post system. The remaining member is nominated as a representative of the Anglo Indian community. The presiding officer of the Assembly is called the Speaker. The term of the Assembly is five years unless it is dissolved earlier.

List of constituencies since 2007Edit

Constituencies were delimited in 2007 based on the 2001 Census of India and following draft proposals. Some constituencies are reserved for candidates from the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.[2][3] The first general elections following the delimitation exercise were those of 2011.
