Arvind Kejriwal is likely to be sworn in as the Chief Minister of Delhi on February 16 for the third time at the Ramlila Maidan, AAP leader Manish Sisodia announced.

He has taken oath as the Chief Minister twice before at the same venue.

Earlier today. newly-elected Aam Aadmi Party MLAs chose Arvind Kejriwal as the leader of the legislature party.

Chief Minister Kejriwal met the MLAs at his official residence at Civil Lines during which he was elected the leader of the legislature party.

The party won 62 out of the total 70 seats in the Delhi Assembly.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal at the Raj Niwas here on Wednesday, a day after he scripted a spectacular victory sweeping the Delhi polls.

The meeting lasted for around 15 minutes. As per procedure, Kejriwal is also likely to tender his resignation to pave the way for his fresh swearing-in as the Chief Minister.
