The Congress Working Committee (CWC) - the party's highest decision-making body - will be meeting on Monday to chalk out a schedule for the party president's election.
It is not clear whether the CWC will decide the role Sonia will play post Rahul's elevation, or convene another meeting later on this.

Rahul Gandhi's elevation looks a mere formality as numerous state units of the Congress have passed resolutions in support of Rahul Gandhi taking over as the new party president.
