CANADA: Sachit Mehra of India-origin has been elected as the new president of the ruling Liberal Party of Canada. For this, elections were held on Saturday. The results were declared on Monday. 46-year-old Sachit defeated Meera Ahmed.

Notably, Sachit is a close friend of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and has been associated with the Liberal Party for nearly 32 years. According to the schedule, general elections are going to be held in Canada in 2025. Trudeau is running a coalition government. For this, Sachit played an important role in creating the Common Minimum Programme.

The competition in this election of the Liberal Party was considered tough. The reason for this was that he was competing with Meera Ahmed, who has been the president of this party before. The Liberal Party is governed by a National Board of Directors. Mehra will also lead it. The general elections in the country are going to be held in 2025, but before that election activities are going on in the states as well.
