Kathmandu, Sept 1: One more year of tenure by the the Central Working Committee (CWC) members of the Nepali Congress (NC). The decision was made a day before its normal tenure was going to expire. According to Kantipur, the three-year tenure of the CWC formed through its 11th General Convention in September 2, 2005, was expiring on Sept 1. The move gives continuity to the Nepali Congress of not holding its general convention on time.
Nepali Congress leader Laxman Prasad Ghimire said that the party has never been able to hold its general convention within three years due to internal and external causes.
"If the party fails to hold the general convention on time, the CWC meeting can extend its tenure not exceeding two years," Ghimire added.
He further said that the ongoing CWC meeting will fix the date for the 12th general convention."
According to Party's statement issued on Sunday said the party, after Mahasamity meeting of both Nepali Congress and NC-D last year, remained busy preparing for Constituent Assembly (CA) polls , enforcement of republican rules and election to President and Prime Minister, leading to its failure in holding timely convention.
