This time, she was removed from the Ministry of Finance to induct newcomer Sarala Baishya in her place and was appointed as Cabinet Minister for Sports. She was reluctant to assume duties as Cabinet Minister for Sports and demanded some other ministry, eventually, she was appointed to the Ministry of Education.
General Elections 2014
In May 2014 general elections, that were held after then Prime Minister Dhrubajyoti Roy decided to step up and new successor was supposed to be chosen. There was a direct contest between her and Sarala Baishya. In the elections, Sarala Baishya won and she then became the Leader of Opposition. With the sudden resignation of Sarala Baishya in December 2014, she became the considered candidate for the office of Prime Minister, but her appointment was delayed by the outgoing Prime Minister, as she was also the President.
First Premiership (2015)
In February 2015, she was elected as Prime Minister for the first term and remained in power until the constitutional changes of December 2015.
Tenure as Chief Justice
Following the constitutional changes, the office of Chief Justice was established and she was appointed to the top constitutional position as the state’s first Chief Justice and remained in office until winning the 2016 March presidential elections.
Election as President
Tanishkaa Patranabish was elected as President in March 2016, defeating incumbent President Dhrubajyoti Roy with a huge difference. She was re-elected to the office in May 2016 again. During her tenure as President, she served as the Speaker of Parliament.
Post-presidency (2016 – 2017)
Upon stepping down from the presidency in October 2016, she was appointed as Deputy Prime Minister and was entrusted with the portfolios of Minister of Finance, Salaries, Law and Justice and eventually the Ministry of Home Affairs. She was again appointed as Deputy Prime Minister in December 2016, with the portfolios of Ministry of Home Affairs, Social Justice and All Party Affairs. In January 2017, she was made the President of the Friends Society Secular Party and continued to lead the party until its merger with the Friends Societal Congress in 2019. In February 2017, she was dismissed from the Union Cabinet by then Prime Minister Dhrubajyoti Roy and she revolted against his joining the Friends Society Independent Party. In April 2017, when the Friends Society Independent Party Leader Sarala Baishya became Prime Minister, it broke the alliance with Friends Society Secular Party and joined hands with the opposition party, the Freedom Party. Subsequent, she was forced to sit in the opposition benches as the Leader of Opposition.
Following the hung verdict in the July 2017 general elections, President Dhrubajyoti Roy suggested all the three parties to form a unity government to be led by the Leader of the single largest party. Eventually, as the Friends Society Secular Party had won 15 out of the 30 seats in the Parliament, its leader Tanishkaa Patranabish became the Prime Minister and led the unity government. But the government was short-lived, and she resigned as Prime Minister in December 2017 and was succeeded by Dhrubajyoti Roy. She became a Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance in the new cabinet.
Following the constitutional coup in May 2018, she was appointed as the President of the Council of Ministers by Supreme Leader Dhrubajyoti Roy and was in office until the Supreme Leader was forced to resign by the Supreme Court.
Dhrubajyoti Roy was appointed as the President, while she was appointed as the Speaker of the Parliament.
In the November 2018 Presidential Elections, she contested against the incumbent President Dhrubajyoti Roy, but faced a defeat in the elections. Soon after winning the elections, Roy announced that the Office of the Prime Minister shall be re-established for accommodating his rival candidate Tanishkaa Patranabish and was eventually sworn-in as Prime Minister on 07th January 2019.
Semi-Presidential Republic (2019-2020)
Soon after taking oath as Prime Minister, she announced that she will work hard to serve the nation under the able leadership of her President Dhrubajyoti Roy. She appointed a 15-member Cabinet and accommodated Former President Sarala Baishya as a Cabinet Minister, which was deeply condemned by the opposition.
Eventually, Sarala Baishya and five other her associates broke from the Friends Societal Congress and established the Independent Party leading to Tanishkaa Patranabish submitting her resignation and the President announced a new election.
On 17 March 2019, Tanishkaa Patranabish led the Friends Societal Congress to victory winning 18 out of the 28 seats in the Parliament, while the opposition Independent Party won just 10 seats. She was sworn-in again as the Prime Minister thereafter.
In August 2019, President Dhrubajyoti Roy through an ordinance announced that the strength of the Parliament shall be increased from 28 to 32, and for which a by-election was necessary. This was a high battle of prestige for Tanishkaa Patranabish and her cabinet. Eventually, the FSC won 03 out of the 04 new seats, increasing their tally from 18 to 21, ushering a full majority in the Parliament. This was for the first time after the 2016 General Elections that any party had single-handedly received a majority.
General Elections, 2020
In the March 2020 Elections, she again led the National People's Congress to a victory, defeating her rival candidate Sarala Baishya.
Executive Presidency (May - June 2020)
In May 2019, then-President Dhrubajyoti Roy had expressed his desire to step down ending his ten-year rule as the Leader and Guide of the Nation, incapacity since 2010. But it was during the meeting of the Central Committee held in October 2019, that his offer was rejected and he was asked to continue as the Head of State for life.
In February 2020, Dhrubajyoti Roy, who was also the First Secretary of the National People's Congress, announced he's stepping down from the position and that Tanishkaa Patranabish would succeed him.
In April 2020, three days before resigning as the President, Dhrubajyoti Roy removed Tanishkaa Patranabish as the General Secretary of the NPC and re-assumed the office. He had also removed her from the line of succession of the Supreme Leader. But on 13th April 2020, through an official communique from the Presidential Office, he announced his resignation and that Tanishkaa Patranabish shall become the Executive President from 01st May 2020.
On 03rd May 2020, the Council of State voted for the new President and Tanishkaa Patranabish was elected to the office. But it was only a month into the new office, the country voted for a new system of government and she was elected as the first Monarch of the newly established monarchy.
On 08th June 2020, she assumed the duties of the Rashtradhyaksh and appointed Dhrubajyoti Roy as the Co-Head of State.
