Ruling Nepali Congress (NC) has completed district convention in all 77 districts as part of the party’s 14th general convention.
The faction of NC President Sher Bahadur Deuba—including Krishna Sitaula who supported Deuba in the general convention and erstwhile Deuba lieutenant Bimalendra Nidhi who contested in the election for president and supported Deuba in the runoff with Shekhar Koirala—has won in 44 districts.
The faction of Shekhar Koirala has won in 33 districts including those won by Ram Chandra Paudel who remained neutral in the general convention.
The current Koirala faction was known as Paudel faction with Koirala in the same faction before the general convention but Koirala has become the leader of the faction after giving a close fight to Deuba in the runoff for president despite Paudel remaining neutral and Prakash Man Singh, also from the Paudel faction, deciding to support Deuba.
NC had held the general convention without holding district convention in 16 districts. District convention has now been completed in all 77 districts.
