Surendra Chaudhary, who had registered his nomination for the post of Central Joint General Secretary of the Nepali Congress, has withdrawn his candidature. 

Surendra Chaudhary had registered his nomination from Tharu Kota on Saturday.

He urged to remove the name from the list of candidates as it would be difficult to separate from the association where he worked. He said that he would support Sher Bahadur Deuba‘s panel. Earlier, four candidates had filed nominations for the post of joint general secretary.

The candidature was registered on Saturday under the 14th General Convention of the Nepali Congress. Although the time for withdrawal of nominations of candidates was not till 11 am today, the final list was published at 12:30 am. Voting is scheduled for 8 a.m. Monday.
