New Delhi: The Election Commission (EC) gave the green signal for the ruling Congress party to postpone its organizational elections to elect the party president till 2010, said a party official who didn’t want to be named. Election to the party president post was due this year, but the Congress has approached EC to defer it as the party was busy with this year’s general election as well as upcoming state elections later this year.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi was unanimously elected to the party president’s post in 2006 for three years.
