Arunachal Pradesh Administration

The Government of Arunachal Pradesh works on the same lines as the other states of the country. The state follows a unicameral system of government i.e. it has only one house – the Arunachal Pradesh Legislative Assembly which consists of 60 members. Like all other states of India, the head of the state is the Governor, appointed by the President of India. The state of Arunachal Pradesh is governed by a Chief Minister and a council of other ministers responsible to an elected unicameral legislature and by a Governor. The Chief Minister is the head of government and is vested with most of the executive powers. The role of Governor is largely ceremonial.
