Livestream of the 2022 Congress President Election Shashi Tharoor and Mallikarjun Kharge: According to news agency PTI, voting is presently taking place for the Congress presidential elections. The voting period, which started at roughly 10 am, will conclude at 4 pm. On October 19, the findings are anticipated to be made public. Over 9,000 Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) delegates, who make up the electoral college for choosing the party leader, will determine the fate of the Congress party. The only two candidates are senior party figures Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor.
With the support of many senior figures, Kharge has been referred to as the “unofficial official candidate” of the Gandhi family, whereas Tharoor has positioned himself as the candidate of change. It will be the sixth time in the party’s roughly 137-year history that the party’s president will be chosen through an electoral process.
