Rahul Gandhi stepped down from the post of Congress President after the Congress Party suffered a series of defeats in the elections. Sonia then took over as interim president. Until now he has been the interim leader. Meanwhile, senior leaders like Kapil Sibal and Ghulam Nabi Azad quit the Congress party demanding reform in the party. As a result, the Congress leadership recently announced that an election would be held for the post of Congress party president.
