The BJP is all set to elect a new party president as early as next week, with current working president J.P. Nadda tipped to be the man for the job.

Senior party sources said that as per the party constitution, once 50% of State level organisational polls are completed, the election for the national president takes place. With the former likely to be completed this week, the national level poll is scheduled for either January 19 or 20.

At least three sets of nomination papers are to be filed for the presidential polls, with a minimum of 20 proposers (drawn from the national executive of the party, from various State units). If there is only one name in the fray (as is likely) then the candidate will be announced as elected unopposed.
