A total of 94 aspirants collected nomination papers from the ruling Awami League to try their luck in three upcoming by-elections in Dhaka 14, Sylhet 3 and Comilla 5 constituencies, the party said on Thursday.

The Awami League said 34 nomination papers were sold for Dhaka 14, 25 for Sylhet 3, and 35 for Comilla 5, until the sale closed at 5pm Thursday.

The by-polls in these constituencies are scheduled for July 28.

The would-be candidates collected forms from Awami League President Sheikh Hasina's political office in Dhanmondi, maintaining Covid-19 health safety protocol, the party said.

The aspirants have already started campaigning through posters, offline and online, in their respective areas alongside lobbying with the senior leaders.

The seats became vacant due to the death of their members of parliament.

Among them, Sylhet 3 MP Mahmud Us Samad died on March 11, Dhaka 14 MP Aslamul Haque on April 4, and Comilla 5 MP Abdul Matin Khasru on April 14.

Voting in these constituencies could not be held within 90 days of the vacancy. So, the polls will take place in the subsequent 90 days, the Election Commission said.
