Election Commission of Arunachal Pradesh



About Election Commission of Arunachal Pradesh

Arunachal Pradesh is quite sparsely populated in comparison with the other states in the Indian Union. It came into existence in 1987, forty years after the Independence, and was carved out of the adjoining state of Assam for the sake of better administration. The population of the state is so sparse that despite covering a modestly large geographical area, it sends only 60 members to the state assembly.

This peace-loving state has been blessed with unambiguous and harmonious elections on a regular basis. The uncomplicated approach to elections makes this state a role model for other states in India. For long the mostly rural population of Arunachal Pradesh has had deep interconnected roots with the Panchayati system, which exists as a full-fledged three-tier setup in the state. The state was much later gifted with an election commission of its own, although only in the year 2001. The election commission is an autonomous body that works under the government but wields enough democratic power to administer, supervise and conduct elections on its own in local urban and rural elections in the state. The first Lok Sabha election in Arunachal Pradesh took place in 1977 while the first Vidhan Sabha election took place in 1978.

History and Formation

Arunachal Pradesh does not have much of a history, except its relations with Assam and the administration by the Assam rulers. It secured its own identity after a few tribal areas in 1914 separated themselves from the then Darang and Lakhimpur districts in Assam and formed the North-East Frontier Tract (NEFT). The state diligently followed the lines of democracy, and later under the 73rd Amendment and Article 243K of the Constitution, Arunachal Pradesh was granted its first state election commission on April 30, 2001. Its first election commissioner was Shri J. M. Tangu, IAS (Ret.). The state election commission was now responsible for conducting and supervising all local urban and rural elections in the state
