Srinagar – Mehbooba Mufti was today unanimously elected as PDP legislature party leader, with a senior leader saying that she is the PDP nominee for the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister’s post.
The 56-year-old PDP President was elected the leader of the legislature party at a meeting of PDP MLAs, MLCs and MPs at her residence in high-security Gupkar here this evening.
Mehbooba is PDP’s nominee for the Chief Minister’s post, said senior party leader Muzaffar Baig after the meeting.
Mehbooba thanked the party legislators for showing faith in her leadership and electing her as the legislature party leader.
She also thanked PDP leaders and workers for their support to her during the nearly three-month-long stalemate over government formation in the state.
“Mehbooba Mufti is nothing without your support. I thank you for your support over the last three months,” she said.
