Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting will be held on Monday at 10.30 am to discuss the schedule of the party president election.

Party sources said the CWC will meet at Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's 10 Janpath residence at 10:30 am on November 20.

The election of party president will be the culmination of the ongoing congress organisational election.

Rahul's elevation was likely to have taken place by October end but got postponed as the party got busy with assembly polls in Himachal Pradesh on November 9 and the December 9 and 14 Gujarat elections.

Congress leader Janardan Dwivedi on Saturday asserted that the Congress Working Committee (CWC) will approve the schedule for nomination, after which the process to select the party president will start.

"And if there is no name then he (Rahul Gandhi) will become the party president", said Dwivedi. Usually, the schedule will be of around 15 days but in all probability, Mr Gandhi will be elected unopposed on the date of withdrawing nominations. However, if only Rahul is filing nominations, the party election authority can announce the results on the day the scrutiny of papers happens.

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. Congress president Sonia Gandhi had last month said that the next Congress would be elected "very soon".

Earlier, all state units and frontal organisations such as the Youth Congress, the Mahila Congress and the Seva Dal unanimously passed resolutions declaring Rahul Gandhi as their president.

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