With Sonia Gandhi completing one year as the Congress interim chief on Monday, the party's decision about the next Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting still hangs in balance, party sources said on Friday.

Earlier, sources had said that Sonia will likely continue as the interim President of the party, but it might need ratification from the All India Congress Committee (AICC).

"There were some internal discussions in the party about Sonia's extension but no decision has been taken yet", the sources added.

Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera, however, said, "When the party decides to convene CWC meet it will be shared."

Sonia Gandhi was appointed as interim President of the party in August 2019, and completes one year on Monday. She was appointed to the post after all the efforts to cajole Rahul Gandhi failed.

Congress leaders have also been demanding that Rahul Gandhi should be brought back as President of the party.
