By A Staff Reporter, Kathmandu, Aug. 13: The Nepali Congress has called its Central Work-Performance Committee’s meeting for Saturday. NC chief secretary Krishna Prasad Paudel informed that the meeting was likely to be held in the morning.
The agenda of meeting is seat-sharing among the five ruling parties for November 20 elections to the House of Representatives and Provincial Assemblies, he informed. In the meeting, the NC is likely to make its stand clear on the seat sharing and ask the members representing the party in the five-party seat sharing taskforce to take stand as per the party line.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister and NC president Sher Bahadur Deuba has appointed Usha Kumari Rawat Mishra (Siraha) as president of the Nepal Women Association, one of the sister organisations of the party.
The party informed that the appointment was made as per a decision of the party’s Central Working Committee meeting held on March 29 and the provision of the party statute.
The post of president in the Association has remained vacant since long as the Association was unable to hold its general convention.
