The Government of Tripura is headed by the Chief Minister, who is the topmost official in the Indian state of Tripura. Although, as per the Constitution of India, the Governor of Tripura is the de jure head, the de facto executive power lies with the Chief Minister. After the Tripura Legislative Assembly elections, the party or coalition with a majority of seats is usually invited by the governor to form the government, and the Chief Minister is appointed by the governor. The council of ministers led by the Chief Minister is collectively accountable to the assembly. As long as the Chief Minister enjoys the confidence of the assembly, they hold office for a term of five years without any term limits.
Since its formation in 1972, Tripura has had several Chief Ministers, each leaving their mark on the state’s political history. The first Chief Minister of Tripura was Prafulla Kumar Das, who served from 1972 to 1977. After him, the state has seen several other notable leaders take on the role of Chief Minister, including Nripen Chakraborty, Sudhir Ranjan Majumdar, and Manik Sarkar.
