Chouhan, who took over the reins of the state from Babulal Gaur in 2005, led the BJP to victory in 2008 and 2013 elections. However, the BJP lost in 2018 and Congress formed the government under Kamal Nath.

But the Congress government collapsed after 15 months in 2020 following rebellion by the then ruling MLAs. Chouhan returned as chief minister for the fourth term.
