The Lok Sabha (Hindi: लोक सभा, Kannada: ಲೋಕಸಭೆ, Malayalam: ലോക്സഭ, Tamil: மக்களவை (இந்தியா) – also titled the House of the People by the Constitution) is the directly elected lower house of the Parliament of India. As of 2009 there have been fifteen Lok Sabhas elected by the people of India. The Constitution limits the Lok Sabha to a maximum of 552 members, including no more than 20 members representing people from the Union Territories, and two members to represent the Anglo-Indian community (if the President feels that that community is not adequately represented). The current (2010) size of the Lok Sabha has 545 members including the Speaker and two appointed members, if any. Each Lok Sabha is formed for a five-year term, after which it is automatically dissolved, unless extended by a Proclamation of Emergency which may extend the term in one-year increments. The 15th Lok Sabha was formed in May 2009.
