KATHMANDU — Voting for the post of Nepali Congress Parliamentary Party (PP) leader is underway at the PP Office in Singha Durbar on Wednesday.

Party President Sher Bahadur Deuba and senior leader Ram Chandra Paudel are in the election fray for the post.

Both, Deuba and Paudel, had registered their candidacy for the election of PP leader yesterday.

The voting started at 11 am and will end at 2 pm today. A candidate must secure no less than 104 votes to get elected to the post of parliamentary party leader.
