Rahul may be declared Cong prez next week

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is expected to collect the certificate declaring his appointment as party president formally next week.

While the date is yet to be finalised, sources indicated that Rahul could collect the certificate between December 14 and 16.

The 47-year-old Amethi MP, who has been the Congress vice-president for nearly five years, is the sole contender for the top party post.

Backed by the entire rank and file of the party, he had filed his nomination for the Congress president's post three days ago.

The last date for the withdrawal of candidature is December 11.

"It is going to be a grand affair at the AICC headquarters next week. Soniaji is expected to accompany him (Rahul), besides other senior leaders of the party. PCC leaders from various states are also likely to be there," a source said.
