Mamata Banerjee will be sworn in as the chief minister of West Bengal for the third time on May 5, her party announced on Monday.
The newly-elected MLAs of the Trinamool Congress unanimously elected Ms Banerjee as the legislative party leader at a meeting here, its secretary-general Partha Chatterjee said.
The TMC legislators elected the speaker in the outgoing House, Biman Banerjee, as the pro-tem speaker in the new Assembly.
“The newly-elected members will take oath in the Assembly from May 6,” Mr Chatterjee told reporters at the party headquarters here after the meeting of the legislators.
