Former West Bengal chief minister and CPI(M) politburo member Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said on Friday that the four Left parties would meet in Delhi shortly to decide their course of action on the Presidential election.

"I will not comment on it now. Let the four Left parties decide. They will sit in Delhi to decide their course of action on the Presidential election," he told reporters on the sidelines of a seminar organised by CPI(M) student's wing SFI.

He was replying to a question on the preference of Left parties on the issue of candidature in the presidential election.

Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee had telephoned him and Left Front chairman Biman Bose on Thursday seeking support on the issue.

Bose said that the Left parties would declare their stand after the UPA announced its candidate.

He said that the Left parties were ready to discuss the issue as soon as the UPA announced its candidate.
