Subramanian Swamy, national president of the Janata Party on Thursday said former President A P J Abdul Kalam is the most suitable candidate for the post of President.

"In the form of presidential election there is a historical turn in the country. In my view candidate for the post should have three qualities," Swamy told reporters in Lucknow.

He said that first the candidate should have a clean image, should be popular among the youth and possess deep knowledge in a particular field.

"My personal view is that former President Dr Kalam fulfils all the three criteria and he should be seated on the post," Swamy said.
