Congress member PJ Kurien could be the party's choice for the post of deputy chairman of the Rajya Sabha which has fallen vacant due to the expiry of term of K Rehman Khan.

Congress sources, however, said a decision on the issue would be taken only after the formal process for the election of the deputy chairman is set into motion.

Kurein is a member from Kerala.

According to reports NCP, which has decided to pull out of the UPA government, wants senior party leader Tariq Anwar as the deputy chairman.

After the election of vice-president, the schedule for the election of deputy chairman is likely to be announced.
