About Assam Legislative Assembly

Assam has a unicameral type of legislature. Its principal law-making body, the Legislative Assembly, is located in the state capital Dispur. The assembly consists of 126 seats filled by representatives directly elected from single-member constituencies. The term of the assembly normally lasts five years.

Assam's legislature owes its origin to the Government of India Act, 1935. A bicameral legislature came into being in 1937 by the provisions of this act. Following independence in 1947, the legislative council was abolished. As a result, Assam's legislature became unicameral.

In next few decades, Assam was truncated a number of times to make way for smaller states in the north-east. The strength of the assembly, too, underwent a number of modifications due to changing demography and geographical boundaries. At present, the assembly has a strength of 126 members.

Elections to the Assembly were first conducted in 1952. The Indian National Congress won 76 seats and formed the government. Bishnu Ram Medhi of Congress became the chief minister.

The last assembly elections were held in two phases in 2011. It led to a thumping victory to the incumbent Indian National Congress. Chief minister Tarun Gogoi was sworn in for the third consecutive term. The only other person to have achieved this feat was Bimala Prasad Cheliha.

Shri P.B. Acharya is the current governor of Assam. Pranab Gogoi is the speaker of the House and Bhimananda Tanti the deputy speaker. The post of main opposition leader stands vacant as no other party secured the required number of 21 seats in the 2011 elections.
