Sunday May 18, 2014 7:41 PM, IANS

The JD-U legislature party Sunday unanimously decided that Nitish Kumar, who quit as Bihar chief minister Saturday following his party's rout in the Lok Sabha polls, will continue as chief minister.

A JD-U leader, who attended the meeting at chief minister's official residence here, said that JD-U legislature party expressed its full faith in Nitish Kumar and decided to re-elect him as their leader.

Senior JD-U legislator Narendra Singh's resolution that Nitish Kumar will be the leader was supported by all legislators present in the meeting.

According to JD-U leaders, the party will formally announce the decision soon.

The JD-U won only two of the state's 40 Lok Sabha seats - as against 20 seats 2009, when it was in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party. The JD-U parted ways with the BJP last year ending a 17-year long tie-up.
