KATHMANDU, Aug 11: The election of the Nepal Students Union (NSU), student wing of the Nepali Congress (NC), is set to take place on August 13.
The election that is taking place after a gap of nine years will pick a new leadership under the 11th general convention of the NSU underway in the Capital.
The name list of the convention representatives will be published today and election materials like identity cards and bags distributed to them, the NSU said.
Likewise, the election committee formed by the NC will prepare and make public the name list of the voters today.
Friday is the date set to register candidate nomination, lodge complaint against the nomination and make public the final nomination, said the committee coordinator Bharat Prasad Kharel.
The election will be held at 7 am at the City Hall while all prior works related to the elections will take place at NC party office in Sanepa, he said.
Meanwhile, although the dispute over the name of representatives from 11 districts was resolved by Tuesday night, the closed door session is yet to take place.
There is another problem to manage the venue for the session as the last date of the booking of the exhibition hall at Bhrikutimandap already expired on August 9.
NSU President Ranjit Karna, however, said that preparations were underway to hold the closed session and carry out other election-related works at the NC party office in Sanepa at the same time while some NSU leaders were arguing that the chapter of the issue to hold the closed session has closed.
