Sharad Ya­dav Not to Seek 4th Term as JD(U) Pres­i­dent

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

NEW DELHI: JD(U) is set to elect a new pres­i­dent in its Na­tional Coun­cil meet­ing here on April 10, bring­ing an end to the over 10year long ten­ure of Sharad Ya­dav, who has de­cided not to seek a fourth con­sec­u­tive term. “Sharad Ya­dav as party pres­i­dent has com­pleted his three suc­ces­sive terms. He has now re­fused to make any amend­ment in the party con­sti­tu­tion so as to elect him for the next com­ing term,” party spokesper­son KC Tyagi said on Mon­day. Ya­dav, one of the founder lead­ers of the party along with Bi­har CM Ni­tish Ku­mar, has been at the helm since 2006 and was re­elected for a third term in 2013 by amend­ing the party’s con­sti­tu­tion which then al­lowed a max­i­mum of two tenures.
