Clearing the air on the much-awaited question many ask, Congress’ Central Election Authority president Madhusudan Mistry on Wednesday said the party would get its new national president by the end of September 2022.
The grand old party is presently headed by interim president Sonia Gandhi, who took over after her son and Congress MP Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post in July 2019 following the party’s defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“As per schedule decided by Congress Working Committee, the election process for the post of Congress president will be completed by September,” Mistry told ANI.
Now, for the first time, the chairman of the Central Election Authority of the Congress party has come on record and disclosed the progress in the process and the deadline to elect the new party president. (ANI)
