Arvind Kejriwal is an Indian Politician and a former bureaucrat who is the current and 7th Chief Minister of Delhi since February 2015.

Currently, he is the national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party, which won the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections with a historic majority, obtaining 67 out of 70 assembly seats.
