Barack Obama on 20 January 2013 formally took oath as the President of the United States of America in the oath-taking ceremony at the White House East Room. Justice John Roberts made him take the oath in presence of his family along with a closed group.

The oath was taken in the brief oath-taking ceremony that was organised for meeting the constitutional guideline of taking the oath of the President and Vice-President on 20 January by noon. He took the oath as the President on the family Bible and repeated the same process of oath-taking on 21 January 2013 on the Bibles, which were used by Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln. He took the oath for the second time because 20 January 2013 was a Sunday and an official Holiday in United States.

Barack Obama, the leader of Democratic Party won the U.S. Presidential election on 7 November 2012 after defeating his close Republican competitor, Mitt Romney. He took oath as the President of world’s largest economy for the second time.
