The Nepali Congress (NC) has agreed to start the village/municipal convention under its 14th General Convention on the scheduled date.
The village/municipal convention has been scheduled to take place from tomorrow, September 25.
A meeting of the NC office-bearers and ex-office-bearers held today in the party’s parliamentary office, Singha Durbar, decided to commence the village/town convention in 64 districts where the ward convention has been already concluded on September 25, according to party Spokesperson Bishwa Prakash Sharma. It means that before Dashain only local- level conventions will be concluded in these 64 districts.

Likewise, the meeting held under the chair of Prime Minister and party President Sher Bahadur Deuba agreed to sort out issues of party active membership in the remaining 13 districts first and go for the ward convention.
