It’s secretary general announces at a media call

The BNP has decided to take part in all the upcoming elections and by-polls, says its Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, he also said their party’s nomination board will finalise the candidates for Dhaka-5, Dhaka-18, Naogaon-6 and Sirajganj-1 by-elections on September 12.

“We’re in favour of taking part in the polls. We stayed away from by-polls to two seats (Bogura and Jessore) due to coronavirus. We’ve now decided to join the local body polls, including upazila ones,” the BNP leader said.

Fakhrul said they will also join the upcoming by-elections to the Dhaka-5, Dhaka-18, Naogaon-6 and Sirajganj-1.

He said BNP will start selling nomination forms among the party aspirants for the by-polls from September 10.

The aspirants can collect the nomination forms and submit those by 5pm on September 11.

Finally, Fakhrul said the party nomination board will take the interviews of the aspirants and pick four candidates on the evening of September 12.

On August 31 last, the party picked Habibur Rahman Habib, a member of the party chairperson’s advisory council, as its candidate to contest the Pabna-4 by-election billed for September 26.
