Congress leader and former Jharkhand minister KN Tripathi Friday filed his nomination for the Congress presidential election.

He is the third candidate in the fray after Congress-backed Mallikarjun Kharge and Shashi Tharoor.

He submitted the nomination papers to Madhusudan Mistry, chairman of the Congress' Central Election Authority, at the Congress party headquarters in New Delhi.

Tripathi was the national president of the Congress-affiliated Indian National Trade Union Congress (Tripathi faction).

The Congress presidential election will take place on October 17. The counting of votes will take place on October 19.
