On October 13, TRS working president K.T. Rama Rao had announced that the election to the president's post will be held at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC) in Madhapur on October 25.

The election had been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering the improvement in the situation, the TRS has decided to hold the election this year.

"As per the party bylaws, the party president's election should be held every two years. It has also been a tradition to organize the party plenary on April 27 every year marking the party's foundation day. However, both of them could not be held for the last three years due to Lok Sabha polls in 2019 and COVID-19 pandemic," said KTR.

He said that as per the guidelines of the Election Commission of India (ECI), the election schedule will be announced on October 17. He said on the same day, a combined Legislature meeting will be held in which MPs, MLAs, MLCs will take part.

Prof. Srinivas Reddy will be the returning officer (RO). Nominations will be received from October 17 to 22. The scrutiny of nominations will be on October 23 and the last date for withdrawal of nominations is October 24.

KTR said the party president will be elected during the TRS general body meeting to be held on October 25.

On the same day, a party plenary will be held under the chairmanship of the newly elected party president. The party resolutions will be prepared by a committee under the chairmanship of former Assembly speaker S. Madhusudhana Chary, said KTR.
