"Our Parliamentary Board will decide whether to project anyone as chief ministerial candidate or not," he said.
Asked about the number of seats which the party will contest, the Home Minister said discussions among the alliance partners were on and a final decision will be taken soon.
Speaking about the prospects in Bihar, the Home Minister said there is a question of credibility about the alliance of the opposition parties comprising JD-U, RJD and Congress.
"But we have a very credible alliance (of BJP, LJP, Majhi and others)," he said.
The SP had recently walked ou of the grand alliance, saying it felt "humiliated" after not being consulted by larger partners in the state over seat sharing.
SP leaders had said that Mulayam was not comfortable with being seen in the company of Congress, a rival in politics of Uttar Pradesh where JD(U) or RJD have hardly any stakes. Being seen with Congress president Sonia Gandhi at election rallies would not go down well with SP supporters, they had said.
SP was reportedly peeved at being allotted just 5 seats in the 243-member assembly by the major partners.
SP, RJD, JD(U), JD(S), INLD and Samajwadi Janata Party--had in April this year announced a merger, which they had said, would be formalised after the Bihar elections.
The term of the 243-member Bihar Assembly comes to an end on November 29. The Election Commission is likely to announce the schedule of the high-voltage Bihar Assembly polls in the next few days.
