BJP working president J.P Nadda is set to take over as the party president, succeeding Union Home Minister Amit Shah, next week, sources said.

The schedule for the election of the new president will be released soon, they said and expressed confident that Nadda will be elected unopposed.

They said a formal announcement on the matter will be made on January 20.
