Arvind Kejriwal to take oath Sunday

Arvind Kejriwal, who returned to power in Delhi with his stunning election victory, will take oath as the Chief Minister of Delhi for the third consecutive term on Sunday, February 16.

The oath-taking ceremony will take place at Ramlila Maidan. Mr Kejriwal will be sworn in along with his team of ministers.

"We will be holding the oath-taking ceremony on Sunday at 10 am... Everyone in Delhi is invited to come and bless their son, their brother, Arvind Kejriwal and take an oath for a better Delhi," top AAP leader Manish Sisodia said during a press conference along with Mr Kejriwal.

Mr Kejriwal, 51, met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal this morning. The meeting at Lieutenant Governor's residence lasted for around 15 minutes. Sources said the two discussed the oath-taking ceremony which could take place over the weekend.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief also met the party MLAs today. The legislators then elected him as the leader of the legislative party. After this, he will stake claim to form government.

Ahead of the oath, as per procedure, Mr Kejriwal is also likely to give his resignation to pave the way for his fresh swearing-in as the Chief Minister.
