About Nagaland Elections

Nagaland in the north east of India became the 16th state of the Indian Union on 1 December 1963. Earlier, in 1957, this state was an autonomous district in Assam consisting of Tuensang and Naga hills division of the Assam.

In 1961, following the Naga people's demand, the Indian Government agreed to the formation of a separate state of Nagaland. Before the first Assembly elections were held in the state, Nagaland constituted an Interim Body of 42 members with an interim executive council headed by a Chief Executive Officer. Dr Imkongliba Ao, the founder of the Naga People's Convention became the Chairman of the Interim Body. Mr P Shilo was appointed the first Executive Councilor and after the elections to the state assembly became the first chief minister of the state. Mr S C Jamir was the first member of the Parliament from the state. He was nominated to the third Lok Sabha by the Interim Body. Mr Melhupra Vero was the first Rajya Sabha MP from the state.

Nagaland has a unicameral legislature consisting of one house of the state legislative assembly called the Vidhan Sabha. The Vidhan Sabha consists of 60 directly elected members. The seat of the legislative assembly is at Kohima, the state capital.

The states are allocated seats in the Indian parliament on the basis of the population of the state. The ratio of the number of seats in the parliament and the population of the state is the same for all states in the country.

The Lok Sabha MP from Nagaland is directly elected from the Nagaland state parliamentary constituency.
