BNP will participate in DNCC election
The BNP will contest the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) by-election, party’s Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said. “The process to take part in the election is going on,” he told reporters after distributing blankets among the poor on the High Court premises on Monday. He said: “The BNP will take part in this election.” The DNCC mayoral post fell vacant on December 1 after the death of Annisul Huq. A by-election to fill the post will be held within the next 90 days, which means the election will take place within February 28. It is unclear who will be picked by the BNP to contest the polls. Leaders of the BNP and its allies have said that the results of the DNCC by–polls will have an impact on the next national election, which is just over a year away. If a candidate backed by the BNP loses in the election, it will negatively affect the party’s performance in the 11th general election, party sources said. Considering this aspect, the BNP is reportedly looking to go with a candidate chosen in coordination with other political parties. That way, if the candidate loses, there will be no impact on BNP in the next election. In the last DNCC election, Awami League-backed Annisul Huq, who apparently had no political ties, defeated BNP-backed Tabith Awal. Mirza Fakhrul said he hoped the Election Commission would organize a free and fair election. “Otherwise, the Election Commission will have to bear all responsibilities,” he added.
