Gorkha Post



KATHMANDU — Nepali Congress (NC) leader Sujata Koirala formally announced her candidacy for the post of party president on Wednesday.

She made the announcement by organising a press conference at her residence in Mandikhatar of Kathmandu this afternoon.

With her candidacy there will be four candidates to vie for post. Alongside Koirala, Ram Chandra Paudel and Krishna Prasad Sitaula from the establishment camp and Sher Bahadur Deuba from the opponent group are competing for the post of party president.

During a conference, Koirala said that she had chosen to strive for the top post of the party to shield the political line of former Prime Ministers BP Koirala and Girija Prasad Koirala.  She also accused acting president Ram Chandra Paudel for undermining the women in the party.

Sujata, who is the only daughter of late Girija Prasad Koirala, claimed that her candidacy is not a bargaining tool but a move to lead the party.
