President of the Nepali Congress Sher Bahadur Deuba today issued a press release assuring that he was fully committed to holding the party's 14th National Convention before mid-September.

He said the national convention of the party was not merely an administrative necessity, but also an important political event for the dynamism of the party.

He said the statement that expressed doubt about holding the national convention was not appropriate.

He said all party leaders had to jointly contribute to the process of holding the national convention on time and within the next two months the necessary preparation should be completed.
