In a tweet, the Governor said that Mamata Banerjee will be sworn in as the Chief Minister of the State at 10.45 am at Raj Bhawan here.
In view of the ongoing pandemic, the oath ceremony will be held with limited audience, he added.
"Taking note of communication @AITCofficial electing @MamataOfficial as leader of 17th WB Legislative Assembly have invited her to take oath of office of Chief Minister on May 5 at 10.45 am at Raj Bhawan. In view of current Covid situation function will be with limited audience." The Governor’s tweet reads.
Earlier in the day, the newly elected MLAs of Trinamool Congress held a meeting at the party office here and unanimously elected Mamata Banerjee as the leader of the TMC Legislative Council.
Biman Banerjee has been nominated as the Speaker of the 17th Legislative Assembly.
Meanwhile, Subrata Mukherjee has been made the pro-tem Speaker.
Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress won 213 seats in the 294-seat State assembly in the just concluded elections.
However, the two-time Chie Minister lost her own election in Nandigram to her former aide-turned-BJP candidate Suvendu Adhikari.
