Follow this space for all the latest updates ahead of much-awaited oath-taking ceremony scheduled to take place on Sunday at 7:15 PM.

Narendra Modi is all set to take oath as the prime minister for a third consecutive term on Sunday evening as President Droupadi Murmu invited him to form the government on Friday. President appointed Modi as the prime minister-designate yesterday after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief J P Nadda handed her a letter on Modi’s election as the leader of the BJP Parliamentary Party and NDA leaders submitted their letters of support.

The saffron party won 240 seats in the just-concluded Lok Sabha polls. It undoubtedly fell far short of the halfway mark in the 543-member House, but the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) together won 293 seats.

“The President, having satisfied herself on the basis of the various letters of support received, that the BJP-led NDA alliance, which is also the largest pre-election alliance, is in a position to command majority support of the newly-constituted 18th Lok Sabha and to form a stable government, appointed Shri Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of India, exercising powers vested in her under Article 75(1) of the Constitution of India,” as per a press note issued by the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

All major allies of the BJP, such as the TDP, JD(U), Shiv Sena and the LJP(R), will be given representation in the government during its swearing-in ceremony, news agency PTI reported citing sources. 

“There will be at least one Cabinet berth for each of them and more representation can be given to them in the future reshuffle and expansion of the council of ministers,” the PTI report said. The report further mentioned that talks are still on and nothing is finalised yet.

Earlier, leaders of the BJP-led NDA called on Murmu and handed their letters of support for Modi to her.

Narendra Modi said he has been appointed as the prime minister-designate by the president. His statement came while addressing reporters in the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. 

“The president has asked me to work as the prime minister-designate and informed me about the oath ceremony,” he said. He also said that he has informed Murmu that they will be comfortable if the event is held on Sunday evening.

Modi said the Rashtrapati Bhavan will work out the details of the oath-taking ceremony on Sunday, by when he would hand over the list of the Council of Ministers to the president.

“This 18th Lok Sabha is an important milestone towards fulfilling those dreams when the country will celebrate 100 years of independence in 2047,” he said.

The 18th Lok Sabha will be a House of new energy, youthful energy, and people have given the NDA government one more chance, Modi added.
