Party Chairman HM Ershad inaugurated the event by purchasing a nomination form for himself
Jatiya Party has started distributing nomination papers among nomination-aspirants for the upcoming 11th general polls, slated for December 23.
Party Chairman HM Ershad inaugurated the form-distribution event by purchasing a nomination form for himself at a community centre in Gulshan, Dhaka, on Sunday afternoon.
“We want the assistance of the people so that we can work for the country,” he said.
The price of a nomination form is Tk20,000.
Later, the party’s Co-Chairman Raushan Ershad collected her nomination form.
“Give us a chance to work for the people and country. We would like to work more for the development of the country,” she said.
The party’s another Co-Chairman GM Quader and Secretary General Ruhul Amin Howlader also purchased nomination forms.
Since the morning, a large number of supporters have gathered at the party office—chanting slogans.
The nomination forms will be available for purchase at the party chairman’s Banani office between November 12 and14.
The nomination forms will have to be submitted by November 15.
Earlier, Ershad said they would contest in the elections as part of the Awami League-led Grand Alliance—if all the parties participate in the elections. If not, they will contest in all 300 constituencies.
