The Fourth Dhrubajyoti Roy ministry was formed immediately after the 2016 December general elections, ushering a victory of the Friends Society United Alliance, comprising the Friends Society Secular Party & Friends Society Independent Party. The pre-poll coalition was elected into office, defeating the Arnab Sil lead Friends Society Freedom Party.

Background

The Friends Society Freedom Party decided to independently contest the elections with Arnab Sil as the face of the party, which led to tendering resignation as the Vice-President, a month before the general elections. However, the party received a humiliating defeat, being able to win only two seats in the Parliament.

The Friends Society Secular Party, which then decided to form an alliance with the Friends Society Independent Party after backing it's leader Sarala Baishya to be the President of the nation. The coalition received a huge support being able to win more than 90% of the total seats in the Parliament.

Government Formation

Soon after the declaration of the results, the winning coalition declared Dhrubajyoti Roy as the Prime Minister and he decided to re-appoint Tanishkaa Patranabish as his Deputy Prime Minister. In the evening, in a solemn ceremony, the President Sarala Baishya swore in the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and a Cabinet Minister. On 11 January 2017, a separate ceremony was organized to swear in other two ministers into the Cabinet.
