The leader of India's main opposition Congress party, Sonia Gandhi, has retired from her post, the party confirmed on Thursday (14).

Her son, Rahul Gandhi, has been elected unopposed as the new president and will officially take charge on Saturday.

Sonia Gandhi, 71, has been the party president since 1998. She was elected to parliament in 1999.

She is, however, not retiring from politics and will continue as a member of parliament, the party said.

Gandhi entered politics in 1994 , three years after after her husband, former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, was assassinated.
