The Fourth Tanishkaa Patranabish ministry (Hindi: चतुर्थ तनिष्का पत्रनाबिश मंत्रीमंडल) was formed on 7 January 2019, following the 2018 presidential elections held in November 2018. Soon after the elections, the winning candidate and President Dhrubajyoti Roy appointed his rival candidate Tanishkaa Patranabish to be the Prime Minister under a semi-presidential mandate.

Government formation

Under the mandate, it was decided that Tanishkaa Patranabish shall be the Prime Minister as the Leader of the Friends Society Secular Party and the other members shall be the Friends Societal Congress. Former President Sarala Baishya was also inducted as a Cabinet Minister, despite of her demand for Deputy Prime Minister's position, eventually, she resigned along with five other ministers following which the Prime Minister tendered her resignation, and the President was forced to announce for new elections.

Composition

The council of ministers composed of ten ministers of cabinet rank including the Prime Minister, three ministers of state with independent charge while six ministers of state. All ministers took charge along with the Prime Minister on 7 January 2019 while on 13 March 2019, five ministers tendered their resignation from the ministry and were subsequently expelled from the Friends Societal Congress. These ministers include Sarala Baishya (cabinet minister), Jemina Hazarika, Rajia Hazarika, Harlong Terang, and Pranjit Kalita (all ministers of state). The resignation of the ministers would force the Prime Minister to lose her confidence and advice the President to call for national elections.
