Elections to the first Legislative Assembly in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in independent India were held in February 1978. All in all, 86 candidates from various political parties were in fray, contesting in a total of 30 Assembly constituencies, out of which 2 assembly seats were reserved for Scheduled Tribes candidates. The Janata Party won with a majority, bagging 17 out of the 30 Assembly constituencies, and formed the government. The People’s Party of Arunachal, in comparison, won only eight Assembly seats while the independents won five seats. K. A. A. Raja, who was nominated as the Lieutenant Governor of Arunachal Pradesh in 1975, continued in the prestigious post, before he was replaced by R. N. Haldipur, who remained the Lieutenant Governor till the end of the term. Prem Khandu Thungan of the Janata Party was elected the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh during this term. Other ministers in the Janata Party-led Arunachal Pradesh government were Gegong Apang, Soben Tyang, Tadar Tang and Nokme, including Sibo Kai, who was the only woman minister in this Assembly.

A number of significant economic and social developments were brought about in this period under the rule of Thungan. Some of the most important legislations passed in the Arunachal Pradesh Vidhan Sabha during this period were:

  • Contingency Union Territory Arunachal Pradesh Determination Act
  • Arunachal Pradesh Anchal Forest Reserve Act
  • Water Pollution Control Cess Act
