The Congress named Rahul Gandhi its new president who is set to take charge from 16th December.
All 89 nominations proposals were found to be valid, and Rahul had been elevated to the top post since he was the only candidate in the fray.
The announcement of his elevation came after the time for withdrawal of nominations had lapsed.
The 47-year-old leader will take over the reins of the party from his mother and current president, Sonia Gandhi. She has held the position for 19 years.
Rahul had taken over as the party's vice-president in January 2013.
