The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh is the chief executive of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. As per the Constitution of India, the Governor of Andhra Pradesh is the state's de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the chief minister. Following elections to the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, the governor usually invites the party (or coalition) with a majority of seats to form the government. The governor appoints the chief minister, whose council of ministers are collectively responsible to the assembly. Given that he has the confidence of the assembly, the chief minister's term is for five years and is subject to no term limits.[1]

Andhra Pradesh was created in 1956 by the merger of the Telangana region of Hyderabad State into Andhra State. Two chief ministers each from the Indian National Congress party had served these predecessor states. The first Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh was Neelam Sanjiva Reddy, later the sixth President of India. Including him, 13 out of 17 chief ministers belonged to the Congress party. Among these P. V. Narasimha Rao, who went on to become the ninth Prime Minister of India. Three chief ministers were from the Telugu Desam Party, including N. Chandrababu Naidu the longest-serving Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh (14 years over 9 years for united state and 5 years for ap after division 2014-2019). Naidu also served as the chief minister after Telangana was officially carved out of Andhra Pradesh into a separate state. Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy of the YSR Congress Party was sworn in as the chief minister after the 2019 Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly election with ever seen majority in the state of Andhra Pradesh and is the current incumbent.[2]

Notes

  1. ^ a b A parenthetical number indicates that the incumbent has previously held office.
  2. ^ a b This column only names the chief minister's party. The state government he headed may have been a complex coalition of several parties and independents; these are not listed here.
  3. ^ a b c President's rule may be imposed when the "government in a state is not able to function as per the Constitution", which often happens because no party or coalition has a majority in the assembly. When President's rule is in force in a state, its council of ministers stands dissolved. The office of chief minister thus lies vacant, and the administration is taken over by the governor, who functions on behalf of the central government. At times, the legislative assembly also stands dissolved.[3]
