About Chief Ministers

A Chief Minister is the elected leader (head of government) of a state of India.

The chief minister is the head of the state, (governor is the nominal head and does everything under the guidance of the chief minister) cabinet, and the leader of the state Legislature. By the Constitution of India, the chief minister is appointed by the Governor of the state.

The parliamentary system in India follows the Westminster system (Still follow UK system). Hence the chief ministers of the states are elected by the members of the legislature.

The people do not elect the head of the government; rather they elect their representatives only. In turn their representatives select the head of the government. But once the head of the government is elected, he or she enjoys almost exclusive executive powers. This is in contrast with the head of the state, the Governor, who is the ceremonial head of state.
