Lucknow: With the stage set for re-election of Samawadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav tomorrow, party's 10th national convention will set the agenda for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh.The last emergency convention on January 1 this year, at which Akhilesh had been chosen president in place of his father Mulayam Singh Yadav, was organised in a hurry.

Tomorrow's event is being organised in a planned way after a series of backroom negotiations among the warring factions within Samajwadi Party.Reports suggest that Akhilesh Yadav will formally be elected president for a five-year term for the first time.Political observers are of the opinion that the real challenge for the former chief minister would begin now as it would be a difficult task to fight against the ruling dispensation both in Uttar Pradesh and at the Centre.
