The Congress Working Committee (CWC), the party’s highest decision-making body, will hold a virtual meeting on Sunday to approve the exact schedule of the dates for the election of the Congress President.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi will preside over the CWC meeting.

“A virtual meeting of the CWC will be held on August 28, 2022, at 3:30 PM to approve the exact schedule of dates for the election of the Congress President. Congress President Smt. Sonia Gandhi will preside over the CWC meeting,” Congress general secretary in charge organization KC Venugopal said on Twitter.

The Congress president will attend the meeting virtually from abroad as she is travelling for a medical check-up.

He is accompanied by Congress President Rahul Gandhi and party General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

There have been several calls by leaders to publicly encourage Rahul Gandhi to become the party chief again, but the presidency of the party remains uncertain and suspenseful.

Rahul Gandhi resigned as Congress President after the party suffered a second consecutive defeat in the parliamentary elections in 2019. Sonia Gandhi who took over the reins of the party again as interim president had also offered to step down in August 2020 following an open rebellion by a section. The number of leaders called G-23 but was urged by the CWC to continue.
