New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi was named the next president of the Congress on Monday. He will take over from his mother Sonia Gandhi.

As many as 89 nomination papers proposing the name of Rahul Gandhi for Congress president was received. All the nomination papers were found valid, Returning Officer of the Election Commission M Ramachandran said.

Gandhi was declared elected after the deadline to withdraw nominations ended.
