The Congress party is going for an organisational election to elect the full-term party chief rather then the interim one for the party’s Working Committee today.
Interim party chief Sonia Gandhi, who took over the post after son resigned in 2019 is likely to continue till full process of fresh memberships and complete election process from district to national level.
This decision will be endorsed by some G-23 leader members like Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma who asked for internal elections in the party.
The staggering perspective among most CWC leaders is to have a membership drive and interior elections from the grassroots to the top and choose a president for a full term and not for an interim period till December 2022, said sources.
Meanwhile, with the state assembly elections early 2022, many leaders think the focus should be on winning these elections rather than on interim elections for party chief.
The CWC will most probably discuss the upcoming state assembly elections and the need for unity within the party to take over BJP in all the states up for elections.
Congress’s internal matters had made front-page headlines last year following an unprecedented letter to Sonia Gandhi asking for sweeping changes in the party and a “visible and effective leadership”.
From that point forward, different leaders have reminded the Gandhis that nothing has changed on the ground and the Congress down twisting proceeds even as it handles disturbance in state units from Punjab to Chhattisgarh.
The party has also been loosing key leaders like Captain Amarinder Singh, Luizinho Faleiro and Sushmita Dev. It was even more shocking when one of Rahul Gandhi’s close confidants Jyotiraditya Scindia switched to BJP last year and when Jitin Prasada early this year. While, in Rajasthan the party us get to resolve the feud between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot.
