Legislative Assembly - Telangana-Legislature

The members of the Vidhana Sabha are directly elected by people through adult franchise.

Each constituency elects one member of the assembly. Members are popularly known as M.L.A's. The assembly is elected using the simple plurality or "first past the post" electoral system. The elections are conducted by the Election Commission of India.

The normal term of the members lasts for five years. In case of death, resignation or disqualification of a member, a by-election is conducted for constituency represented by the member. The house can be dissolved under the following conditions:

1. Failure to govern the state under the constitution

2. Inability of anyone to command majority support in the house for more than 1 month

3. Unopposed decision of cabinet to dissolve the house.

The person who commands majority support of house members becomes the Chief Minister, forms the cabinet and his party/coalition becomes the ruling party/coalition.

HistoryEdit

After the official division of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, the state would be an bicameral assembly with a legislative council and a legislative assembly.

The new state Telangana would be given 119 seats and its very first election would take place in April 2014. TRS had swept the election and formed the government with a super majority. With INC coming as the opposition and TDP as the 3rd largest. Then in 2018 the assembly dissolved earlier then expected and in the 2018 election TRS won with a greater majority.

Then in 2019 the assembly approved the addition of another MLA. And instead of being MLA this would be a nominated MLA by the ruling party from the Anglo-India community. Stephenos Elvis is the current nominated MLA from the TRS party.
