The first session of the new Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly began today in the morning at 11.52 am with Naidu first taking oath as member of the House. He was followed by his Cabinet colleagues.
The oath was administered by pro-tem Speaker Pativada Narayanaswamy Naidu.
A total of 173 MLAs took oath. There are two vacancies in the 175-member House.
The state election results were declared on May 16 but the Assembly session could not be convened because the state bifurcation process was underway. It was formally completed on June 2.
Naidu`s party TDP stormed to power in Seemandhra in the 2014 Assembly polls held in undivided Andhra Pradesh.
The TDP-BJP alliance has won 106 of the 175 assembly seats in Seemandhra. This was 8 seats more than the figure of 88 required to form the government in residuary Andhra Pradesh.
Jagan Reddy`s YSR Congress bagged 67 seats, while the Congress, which ruled AP for over four decades in the 57 years of existence of the state, drew a blank in the recently concluded elections.
