The 11th International General Convention of the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) is taking place in Kathmandu from October 17 to 20. The convention coincides with the 20th anniversary of the NRNA, it has been said.

The convention, which is held in every two years, will elect office bearers of the International Coordination Council of the NRNA.

President Ramchandra Paudel is scheduled to inaugurate the convention on 17 October. The World Knowledge Conference will be organised for two days, October 17 and 18, said the NRNA spokesperson Somnath Sapkota.

A session on the subject of women and youth will also take place during the period. According to the election schedule, online voting will open 24 hours from 19 October. Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal is slated to conclude the polls on 20 October in the evening.

The NRNA has made arrangements for online voting for the first time. A 'facial app' would be used for voting. A link of the app will be sent to all voters 24 hours before voting. After opening the link on electronic devices, voters are allowed to vote after verifying their faces.

For the convention, 59 National Coordination Council elections were held earlier, through which the total 4,227 international representatives were elected.

Online voting has facilitated representatives across the globe as they can vote online from anywhere across the globe. However, the candidates must visit the convention site for registering candidacy. Likewise, the proposers and seconders must visit the convention site for verification. Arrangements have been made for the representatives visiting the convention site to vote online by placing computers at certain places in the venue, said Sapkota. Around 1,500 candidates and voters are estimated to vote from the convention site.

Five people are racing for the presidential position of the NRNA. The sitting NRNA presidents Badri KC and Rabina Thapa, vice presidents Mahesh Shrestha and RK Sharma and deputy general secretary Binaya Adhikari are in the race.
