On Monday, according to party sources, Sonia Gandhi, the temporary head of the Congress, intimated that she had no objections to Shashi Tharoor competing for the position of Congress President.
Shortly after seeing Tharoor and a few other Congressmen upon her return from a medical examination overseas, Sonia Gandhi nodded.
One of the G-23 party members, Tharoor, had pushed for broad reforms in Congress.
Resolutions to elect Rahul Gandhi as the next party leader have been adopted by Congress state units in many states, including Rajasthan.
Such resolutions won't affect the election process, according to the Central Election Authority (CEA) of Congress.
There is still uncertainty over the individuals who will run for the top party position, even though the notification for the presidential election will be released on September 22.
While the Thiruvananthapuram MP Tharoor is the G-23 group's top option and is preparing to run for office, sources claim that Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot is the favored candidate among party members.
Within the dates of September 24 and September 30, submissions must be submitted.
