However, party sources said there is pressure from party cadres in favour of an announcement.

"Meeting of parliamentary board will take place in the coming days. It may take place on September 13," a party leader said.

Some senior leaders are also of firm opinion that clarity on the issue of prime ministerial candidate will work to the advantage of the party and help it gather electoral momentum.
