BJP Working President JP Nadda is likely to be elected unopposed for the top party post. The election of a new President will bring to end incumbent Amit Shah's tenure of over five and half years. Under his leadership the BJP expanded its footprints across the country. With Mr Shah joining the second term of the Narendra Modi government as a Home Minister, the BJP began the exercise for electing his successor as the party has the convention of 'one person, one post'.
