Consequently, NEC approved of nomination for national executive positions to be opened on November 2, 2015 and close on November 7, 2015.

Vetting of all aspirants would also be held between November 9-12, 2015. Also, NEC formed various committees that would organise and superintend activities leading up to the Congress.
