Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that the BJP will appoint its party president by December. Shah, who is also BJP chief, has said the new party head will take the oath by this year-end.
Amit took over as party chief in 2014 when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was made the prime minister candidate. Since then, the BJP is headed by Shah.
Just after the Lok Sabha elections 2019 results, speculations were doing rounds that JP Nadda will head the party but later he was made the party working president. Reports said JP Nadda was given the responsibility before the time of appointment as the next party chief so that he may get some more experience about the party.
JP Nadda, who was also the union minister in the Modi government from 2014 to 2019, had held key positions in the BJP before joining the national politics.
