"The President has been pleased to appoint Shri Arvind Kejriwal to be the Chief Minister, Capital Territory of Delhi with effect from the date he is sworn in," a gazette notification said.

Kovind also appointed Manish Sisodia, Satyender Jain, Gopal Rai, Kailash Gehlot, Imran Hussain, and Rajendra Gautamas the ministers in Delhi, with effect from the date they are sworn.

Kejriwal and other ministers will take oath on Sunday at Ramlila Ground in Delhi.
