DNCC by-polls: AL starts selling nomination papers
Published : 13 Jan 2018, 15:56
Two candidates willing to contest the upcoming by-polls of the Dhaka North City Corporation under the banner of Awami League collected nomination papers today thus kicking off the nomination papers sale process.
Rasel Asheki and Adom Tamiji Huq collected the nomination papers from the party president Sheikh Hasina's Dhanmondi political office, according to a party press release.
Meanwhile Atiqul Islam, former-president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, will collect the nomination papers this evening, party sources said.
By-election to Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayoral post will be held on February 26. Elections in the 36 new wards, which have been included in DNCC and Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC), will also be held on the day.
The DNCC mayoral post became vacant after Mayor Annisul Huq passed away on November 30 last year. On December 1, the Local Government Division declared the post vacant.
The ruling AL is likely to nominate Atiqul Islam, former-president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, as its candidate, while the BNP is expected to pick party leader Tabith Awal, who ran against AL contender Annisul in the previous election.
