Rahul Gandhi set take over as Congress president on early December

The election authority of the party had decided last date of filing nomination papers to be December 1 and if there is a contest, internal elections will be held on December 8.

The entire process may take 10 to 14 days, according to sources, which means that Mr. Gandhi may get elevated to the post before the results for the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections are announced.

When it did not, a new date was finalised.

The latest development comes in the backdrop of the Congress party's much-awaited working committee meeting on Monday.

Mr. Gandhi faces not just the challenge of pulling the party out of a long-running electoral slump but also effecting a generational shift within the party organisation.
