Rahul Gandhi officially declared Congress president

Rahul Gandhi was named the next president of the Congress on Monday. He will take over from his mother Sonia Gandhi, who has been the longest-serving party president so far, after having taken charge in 1998.

Returning Officer of the Election Commission M Ramachandran said, “89 nomination papers proposing the name of Rahul Gandhi for Congress president have been received. All the nomination papers have been found valid.”

Gandhi was declared elected after the deadline to withdraw nominations ended. However, the elevation is only a formality as the Election Commission had already declared that Rahul Gandhi was the only candidate in the fray with a valid nomination for the Congress Presidential election. He had filed his nomination papers for the post of party president on December 4.
