Congress President Election 2022 Latest Updates
Voting will be held on Monday for the election of the new President of Congress. On one hand, Mallikarjun Kharge is thrashing about his claim and on the other hand Shashi Tharoor is also leaving no stone unturned.
All the preparations have been completed for this election. Madhusudan Mistry, head of the Central Election Authority, said that voting for this election will be held from 10 am to 4 pm. In this, Congress delegates from all the states will be able to vote.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi, along with AICC general secretary, state in-charge, secretary and joint secretaries, will cast their vote in the morning at 24 Akbar Road, the Congress headquarters. Voting will be held at the Congress headquarters as well as in the offices of the State Congress Committee present across the country.
36 polling stations and 67 booths across the country
According to the Congress’s Central Election Authority (CEA), there will be 36 polling stations and 67 booths across the country. One booth has been set up for every 200 votes. At the same time, in view of ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, about 47 people including Rahul Gandhi will vote in Karnataka itself. During voting, Congress Delegates will have to put a tick mark against the name of the candidate of their choice.
Reply to Shashi Sharroor’s objections
Before voting, Shashi Tharoor’s team objected by saying that Mallikarjun Kharge’s serial number is one in the ballot paper. Therefore, confusion may arise in front of the person voting. Understanding Tharoor’s team’s objection, the Congress’s election committee has now spoken of using A instead of 1.
At the same time, two days ago, CM Ashok Gehlot had appealed on social media to make Mallikarjun Kharge win. On this also Shashi Tharoor had objected and said that Madhusudan Mistry should look into this matter. Madhusudan Mistry said that he is getting the matter investigated to see what action can be taken on this.
