The main party's National Convention is a series of presidential nominating conventions held by the party every four years. The primary goal of the National Convention is to nominate and confirm a candidate for president and vice president and adopt a comprehensive party platform. Like the Opposition National Convention, the party's National Convention marks the formal end of the primary election period and the start of the general election season.
