Six female politicians are actively manoeuvring to be nominated for the reserved parliamentary seat for women in Gopalganj.

The female leaders have been communicating with influential leaders of their respective parties, seeking support. 

According to Awami League party sources, the female leaders who are reliable and trusted will be the ones to receive its nomination for the reserved parliamentary seat for women.

Incumbent MP of the reserved seat, Swechchhasebak League leader Advocate Ummey Razia Kajol – who was injured in the August 21 grenade attack – is making a great deal of effort to become a lawmaker again.

Also lobbying to receive the nomination for the reserved seat are: Sheikh Mili, president of Dhaka’s Dhanmondi unit Mohila Awami League; Gopalganj district Mohila Awami League President Nasima Akhter Rubel; National University Teachers’ Association's General Secretary Arifa Rahman Ruma; Awami League international affairs sub-committee member Qantara Khan, who is also the daughter of Gopalganj 1 constituency lawmaker and central Awami League presidium member Lt Col (retd) Muhammad Faruk Khan; and member of Gopalganj Upazila Parishad’s selected reserved seat and Shammilito Sangeet Shilpi Sangathan General Secretary Tania Haque Shobha.

Gopalganj district Awami League General Secretary Mahbub Ali Khan told the Dhaka Tribune: “The nomination for the reserved parliamentary for women will be provided by the party’s president, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

“The prime minister will assess all aspects of the contenders and then choose to nominate the person who she believes to be most qualified among the candidates,” he said.
