SENIOR ADVOCATE K K VENUGOPAL HAS EMERGED AS THE FRONT-RUNNER FOR THE POST OF ATTORNEY GENERAL :

The senior advocate K K Venugopal has emerged as the front-runner for the post of attorney general following the decision of Mukul Rohatgi to step down as the top law officer in the government.  The Attorney General’s appointment is likely to be announced shortly after Prime Minister Narendra Modi returns from his three-nation tour, sources in the know said.  Asked whether the 86-year-old noted constitutional expert has given his consent, they said that the issue and other aspects of his appointement will be considered only after the return of the prime minister.  Venugopal, who is the recipient of Padma Vibhushan and Padma Bhushan, is likely to represent as the top law officer for the second time, as he was one of the Additional Solicitors General during Morarji Desai’s government.  Rediff.com : 27th.
