Congress to discuss schedule for party president election on November 20

Explaining the process for the elections, Dwivedi said the CWC approves schedule for the elections, "The Congress Working Committee approves the schedule for the Congress President Elections separately".

The dates for electing the president of the Congress party would be decided during the CWC meeting on Monday. Reports claimed the body will announce the schedule of election for the post of Congress President, following which the election would be held within 15 days.

Party leaders say though it is not necessary to convene a formal meeting of the CWC to approve the schedule of the presidential election, Sonia Gandhi has chose to get the approval of the party's highest decision-making body.

"Dates for the election of Congress president to be fixed on Monday".

"The date for Congress president elections will be announced, when the nominations will be filed, when the scrutiny will happen and when the date for taking back the names will happen", he said.

While the filing of nominations could end on November 24, the last date of withdrawal could be December 1.

Last week, there was buzz in the party circles that Rahul's elevation had been deferred till the Gujarat poll result on December 18.

Earlier there were speculations that Rahul Gandhi's elevation has been put off but the sources inside Congress confirmed that no such decision had been taken. Besides, Rahul preferred an election route than being named party chief by Sonia.

Sources also said that Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi would be elevated as the President of the Congress before 5th of December.

In that case, Rahul Gandhi will be anointed as the Congress president before Gujarat Assembly elections.

The CWC can also expect to look in the Gujarat elections but it would be peripheral.
