Election Result Tomorrow: Voting for the post of Congress President ended on Monday (October 17). Over 9,500 Congress representatives across the country voted to elect a non-Gandhi president. There is a contest between Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President. Now its results will be announced on Wednesday (October 19). President of the party’s Central Election Authority Madhusudan Mistry said that the results of the elections will come on October 19 and the counting of votes will be done when the ballot papers from all the PCC offices come to Delhi.
‘Elections were free, fair and transparent’
Madhusudan Mistry expressed satisfaction over the election process and claimed that the election has been “free, fair and transparent”. However, he reacted to Tharoor’s allegation saying that he cannot force anyone to attend a meeting. Madhusudan Mistry also said that this exercise started about two years ago and more than 9,900 representatives were selected from every block of the country for this election.
‘Who voted for whom will not be known’
“The most satisfactory thing for us was that in all the states where polling stations were set up, there were no adverse incidents. This is a great achievement…the elections were conducted in an open process and peacefully,” Mistry said. He said that one should not have any apprehension as it is a secret ballot and no one will know who voted for whom. He also said that the entire voting process has been recorded on cameras.
Will there be voting in CWC?
Asked whether voting would take place for the new CWC, he said it would depend on the decision of the new Congress president and the party’s plenary session. On the other hand, Madhusoon Mistry described his experience about the election as “very good” and said that the election was like a “festival”.
What will Kharge say after voting?
Mallikarjun Kharge, who is contesting for the post of Congress President, said in Bengaluru that Shashi Tharoor called him and wished him good luck and he also wished the same. He said that both were fighting internal elections in a friendly manner to strengthen the Congress to build a stronger and better nation for the future generations.
‘Leader was with another candidate’
In Thiruvananthapuram, Shashi Tharoor said he was confident of victory, even though the odds were stacked against him, as leaders and establishment sided with another candidate. He said, “India needs a strong Congress. I fought for Congress and India, not for my political future. I am here as a viable alternative. I stand for change.”
