The BNP has picked Habibur Rahman Habib, a member of the party chairperson’s advisory council, as its candidate to contest the Pabna 4 by-election.

Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir made the announcement on Monday after the party's nomination board took virtual interviews of two nomination seekers from its chairperson’s Gulshan office.

 “Our nomination board or party standing committee nominated Habibur Rahman Habib as our candidate for Pabna 4 by-election,” he said.

Habib, also the Pabna district unit convener, contested the 11th parliamentary election with BNP’s ticket but lost to ruling Awami League’s Shamsur Rahman Sherif.

On Sunday, Habibur Rahman Habib and Sramik Dal leader Ahsan Habib bought the party’s nomination forms to contest the by-polls with the party’s election symbol ‘Sheaf of Paddy’.

The by-polls to Pabna 4 seat is scheduled to be held on September 26.

As per the schedule, the last date for submitting the nomination papers is September 2, the date for scrutinising nomination papers is September 3 and the last date for the withdrawal of nomination papers is September 8.

The Pabna 4 seat fell vacant following the death of ruling party MP Shamsur Rahman Sherif on April 2, but the Election Commission could not arrange the by-polls as per the constitutional binding of within 180 days due to coronavirus outbreak.
