About Telangana Assembly Constituencies
Telangana, like any other state in India, has specific geographic regions which are represented in its legislative assembly.The present state of Andhra Pradesh has had a history of both unicameral and bicameral legislatures. These specific regions in its legislative assembly are called assembly constituencies. When the present state of Andhra Pradesh came into existence in 1956, the Andhra Pradesh Vidhan Sabha had 85 Assembly constituencies. Out of these 85 constituency seats, 65 were for general candidates, 18 constituencies were reserved for candidates who belonged to the Scheduled Castes and 2 were reserved for Scheduled Tribe candidates. The number of assembly constituencies in the state was increased from 85 to 246 in the year 1962, when the third term of the Andhra Pradesh Vidhan Sabha was elected. The number was increased to 287 Assembly constituencies in the following elections in 1967. The present number of constituencies in the state is 294 spread across 23 districts. Out of these, 227 assembly seats are reserved for candidates belonging to the General category, 48 are reserved for Scheduled Castes and 19 are reserved for the Scheduled Tribes. Each of these constituencies is represented by a Member of the Legislative Assembly, who voices the concerns of that particular constituency in the Vidhan Sabha. Members from each of these Assembly constituencies are elected directly by the voters in the Assembly elections, who exercise their right of the Universal Adult Franchise. The elections are held after a period of every 5 years, if the Vidhan Sabha is not dissolved sooner. The supervision and responsibility of the elections to these assembly constituencies is carried out by a centralized, independent statutory body called the Election Commission.
