With Centre extending the tenure of Attorney General of India KK Venugopal on Wednesday for three more months, all eyes are now on who will be the next contender for the post.

The government had requested Venugopal, 91, to continue as the Attorney General, following which he agreed to continue for three more months. His present tenure was coming to an end on June 30.

This is the third time the Centre has extended his tenure. Venugopal, who was appointed Attorney General in July 2017, received his first

extension of term in 2020.

The Attorney General took over as the 15th Attorney General after senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi demitted office citing personal reasons.

Venugopal was not willing to continue in the constitutional post due to personal reasons last year as well. But following a request by the central government, he has agreed to continue as the top law officer of the Union of India for three more months.

Venugopal has been awarded Padma Bhushan in 2002 and Padma Vibhushan in 2015.
