The dates for election of Congress president to be fixed on Monday, party General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi said on Saturday.
"If only one nomination is filed it'll be announced on date of withdrawal of nominations that he is the President since there is no other nomination," Dwivedi told reporters on a question being asked if Rahul Gandhi will be named Congress President.
The much-awaited meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) to approve the schedule of the party president's election will take place on Monday at Sonia Gandhi's residence, party sources said.
