The TDP Legislature Party met in temple-town Tirupati late last night and unanimously elected Chandrababu as its leader.
Senior legislators Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, KE Krishna Murthy, Mandali Buddha Prasad, Dhulipalla Narendra and others met the Governor this afternoon and informed him about the unanimous election.
"We requested the Governor to invite Chandrababu Naidu to form the government of (new) Andhra Pradesh," Yanamala later told reporters.
The Governor sought details about the swearing-in, like place and time, which the TDP delegation provided.
The Governor is expected to invite Chandrababu on Thursday evening and hand-over a letter formally appointing the latter as the first Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
A "muhurtam" has been set at 7.27 pm on June 8 for Chandrababu's swearing-in.
Keeping with his promise to people, Chandrababu will take oath at a public function at Nagarjuna Nagar between Vijayawada and Guntur.
Elaborate arrangements are being made for the swearing-in ceremony as a crowd of over five lakh people is expected for the event.

The TDP won 102 seats in the 175-member AP Assembly.
