KATHMANDU, August 23: A meeting of the top leaders of the ruling coalition is being held today to discuss the issue of seat distribution for the upcoming elections.
The top leaders along with the members of the seat allocation task force led by Nepali Congress (NC) leader Krishna Prasad Sitaula are going to hold a meeting today.
A member of the task force said that the meeting has been called at 3PM today at the Prime Minister's residence, Baluwatar. The top leaders are preparing to finalize the issue of seat distribution within the third week of August.
The leaders of the alliance formed an 11-member task force for seat distribution after deciding to jointly fight the elections to the House of Representatives and provincial assemblies slated for November 20.
Although the task force was given a deadline of mid-August to finalize seat distribution, it could not complete the work within that period.
