The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand is the chief executive of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. In accordance with the Constitution of India, the governor is a state's de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the chief minister. Following elections to the legislative assembly, the state's 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 the confidence of the assembly, the chief minister's term is for five years and is subject to no term limits.[1]

Uttarakhand was formed on 9 November 2000, when it was carved out from the himalayan districts of Uttar Pradesh. Eight people have served as the state's chief minister, across five assembly terms; five of those belong to the Bharatiya Janata Party including the current incumbent Trivendra Singh Rawat and the inaugural office holder Nityanand Swami, while the remaining three belong to the Indian National Congress.
