Mukesh Ambino, the man who is already the richest man in India, is set to be elected as India’s next prime Minister.
On Thursday, the Election Commission announced the results of the poll and confirmed that Ambino will be the party’s candidate for the Prime Ministerial poll.
The party will field around 30 candidates, and will choose between the leaders of the Congress party, the BJP, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK).
The Congress, led by Rahul Gandhi, will be in power for the next two years, and the BJP will be headed by Narendra Modi for two more.
The AIADMK, led at the time by L.K. Advani, will form the next government, but it will face an uphill battle to win a majority.
Ambino’s party has already said it will contest the election in five states, and he has also said that he will make his decision on who will be his successor at the end of his tenure in office.
This is the first time in India that an Indian Prime Minister has not been a woman.
The next Prime Minister is expected to be a man, as the current Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, is of Indian origin.
The announcement of the elections comes after several major Indian political parties were rocked by revelations about the sexual harassment and violence suffered by Indian women in the wake of the December 2016 Delhi gang rape.
The revelations were first made public in the New York Times on December 4.
The paper reported that the Delhi rape was the result of a “culture of impunity” in India.
Ambino has previously been criticized for his role in a massive corporate deal involving the Indian company Tata Steel, which was reportedly sold to a private equity firm for $2.7 billion.
As part of the deal, Tata Steel was given the right to sell its assets in India to the private equity group, which subsequently invested in a string of private equity funds.
Ambioi was also responsible for negotiating the sale of the Tata Steel assets to a consortium led by the Indian conglomerate Reliance Industries.
Ambini was named CEO of Tata Steel after the deal.
According to the Times, Tata was given “a $2 billion contract to build a steel mill in eastern India.”
The deal resulted in the death of over 1,000 workers in Bangladesh and a further 2,400 injured workers.
The Times reported that Ambani was also given a $1.5 billion contract for the sale, which would have included a stake in Tata Steel.
The Indian government has not commented on the allegations against Ambino.
Ambani has previously said that his decision to enter politics was a “personal one.”
He has been described as a “family man” by his supporters, and has said that while he did not have an agenda in life, he did make his own decisions and was open to change in a democracy.
