How is the Chief Minister Elected? Any state in India undergoes elections every five years to elect the government of the state. Following the elections of the state legislative assembly which is more commonly known as Vidhan Sabha, the governor invites the party which has secured the highest number of seats in the election to form a government. Upon satisfying the majority number criteria, that party can form government in the state. If no party has secured the majority mark, a coalition of various parties can form a government in the state. This model is based on the Westminister System. The term of the chief minister is parallel with the term of the legislative assembly- five years, subject to the fulfillment of the majority number criteria. If the incumbent government falls short of a majority, the term of the Chief Minister ends before five years.
