A total of 5 candidates got electoral symbols and a copy of the electoral code of conduct on Friday to contest the upcoming Parliamentary polls slated for January 27 from Gaibandha-3 (Sadullapur-Palashbari) constituency of the district.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) and also Returning Officer Abdul Matin formally distributed the symbols to the candidates or their authorized persons at his conference room of the district collectorate building here on Friday.
Those who received symbols for contesting the Parliamentary polls from the constituency are Awami League nominee Dr Younus Ali Sarker (Boat), Jatiya Party (Ershad) nominee Barrister Dilara Khandakar (Plough), Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal candidate SM Khademul Islam Khudi (Torch), NPP candidate
Mizanur Rahman Titu (Mango) and independent candidate Abu Zafar M Zahid (Lion).
DC Abdul Matin warned the candidates not to violate the code of conduct and said violators would be spared and legal actions would be taken against the violators as their duty is to ensure a level field playing for the candidates.
Additional District Magistrate Kaisarul Islam, District Election Officer Mahbubur Rahman and journalists of print and electronic media including national news agency were present on the occasion.
To get the electoral symbols, the candidates and their supporters and workers crowded in the conference room enthusiastically and started electoral campaign to the voters here like other parts of the country.

Then, the Election Commission announced the re-schedule of the election to be held on January 27.
