KK Venugopal Re-Appointed Attorney General For Three Months
- Attorney General (A-G), K.K. Venugopal has been re-appointed as the country’s top law officer for a period of three months. Mr.Venugopal, whose current one-year term ends on June 30, agreed to a short tenure following a request from the government. The sources cited above said that he was initially not willing to continue in the Constitutional post due to “personal reasons”.
- In July 2017, Mr.Venugopal, 90, was appointed by the President of India to succeed MukulRohatgi as the A-G. The government’s top law officer enjoys a tenure of three years. However, when Mr.Venugopal’s first term as A-G was to end in 2020, he requested the government to give him a one-year tenure keeping in mind his advanced age. Last year too, he was reappointed for one year.
