Sher Bahadur Tamang, Director General of the CPN UML Secretariat, said the approved document will be presented at a meeting of the Central Committee.

He said the congress will be held in November-December to resolve internal issues. Even before the preparation for the congress, the controversy over party activists was brewing. He believes the party membership issue should be taken up a year before the deadline for the congress.
“We want to hold the congress as soon as possible,” he said. He said he also put forward his candidacy for party chairman. Two other candidates from party bodies are keen to vie for the post and if we all vie for the post, we will lose the battle and discussions are underway to reach a consensus to present a single candidate.
