Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh

The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh (UP), a north Indian state, is the head of the Government of Uttar Pradesh. As per the Constitution of India, the governor is the state's de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the chief minister. Following elections to the Uttar 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]

On 26 January 1950 Govind Ballabh Pant, Premier of United Provinces, became the first Chief Minister of the newly renamed Uttar Pradesh. Including him, 11 out of the 20 UP chief ministers belong to the Indian National Congress. Among these is V. P. Singh, a future Prime Minister of India, as was Charan Singh of the Rashtriya Lok Dal. UP has also had two women chief ministersSucheta Kriplani and Mayawati. On ten occasions, most recently in 2002, the office of chief minister has been vacant, the state having come under President's rule.

Akhilesh Yadav has served as the incumbent chief minister since 15 March 2012.
