This was informed by Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Sunday.
"Bhupendra Patel elected as the new leader of BJP Legislative Party," said Union Minister and BJP's Gujarat-in-charge Tomar said after the party's legislative meeting.
"Bhupendra Patel will be sworn-in as Gujarat CM soon,' he added.
This comes a day after Vijay Rupani submitted his resignation from the top post.
Bhupendra Patel had won his seat by a margin of 117,000 votes in 2017, the largest margin in that poll.
Assembly polls in Gujarat are scheduled to take place in 2022.
