Sonia Gandhi calls CWC meeting over Rahul elevation

New Delhi: party, the Congress Working Committee (CWC) is likely to meet on Monday at party chief Sonia Gandhi's dwelling in the national capita for Rahul Gandhi's possible elevation as a party president for Gujarat elections. The closed-door meeting of the CWC will be chaired by current Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who has been held the post for 19 years.

Rahul Gandhi's elevation looks a mere formality as numerous state units of the Congress have passed resolutions in support of Rahul Gandhi taking over as the new party president.

As part of the internal polls, most state units have already passed resolutions urging Rahul to take over as the next party president. While the agenda of the meeting has not been formally revealed, insiders said the party has no bigger subject on its mind than completing the organisational elections.

The much-awaited political event - the elevation of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to the post of the president of the party - may take place before the upcoming Gujarat Assembly elections, and is likely to be announced on Monday, November 20.

In case an election is required, it would be conducted on December 8, just a day before the first phase of polling for the Gujarat Assembly elections.

Rahul, who entered politics in 2004, was appointed the vice-president of the party in 2013. Besides, Rahul preferred an election route than being named party chief by Sonia. "If only one nomination is filed, the results will be announced on the date of withdrawal of nominations", AICC general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said.

As of now, Mr. Gandhi is the only candidate in the fray and is likely be elected unopposed - a sentiment conveyed by almost all the PCCs, who have passed resolutions asking that he take over as president.

Once the schedule for the election is approved by the CWC, the party's Central Election Authority will notify the same.
