NEW DELHI: Joint opposition candidate for the vice presidential election Margaret Alva on Tuesday filed her nomination papers for the post and was accompanied by a host of leaders.
The vice presidential poll will be held on August 6 to elect the successor to M Venkaiah Naidu, whose term ends on August 10.
Several opposition leaders, including Congress’ Rahul Gandhi, NCP’s Sharad Pawar, CPI-M’s Sitaram Yechury, CPI’s D Raja, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, were present during her nomination filing.
Tuesday is the last date for submission of nominations for the vice presidential election.
“It’s a tough election without a doubt, but I’m not afraid to take on the challenge,” she had said on Monday while thanking opposition parties who have supported her candidature.
