A unified opposition may chose Gopal Krishna Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi as the candidate for the next president of India. The BJP led NDA on the other hand is almost certain to chose Jharkhand Governor, Draupadi Murmu as the next presidential candidate.
The elections will be held in July. The name of Gandhi, former governor of West Bengal was suggested by Mamata Banerjee and a unified opposition is likely to accept the same. The presidential election will be a big test for the opposition which is looking to beat the BJP.
