Candidates of different student organisations and independents submitted nomination forms ahead of forthcoming Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) and hall union poll scheduled for March 11.

As of now, eight panels were announced including that of the ruling Awami League-backed Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), BNP backed Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD), alliance of left students’ organisations, two factions of Bangladesh Chhatra League (Jashod) and Bangladesh Chhatra Moitri.

Apart from these panels, Bangladesh Students’ Right Protection Council, a platform which spearheaded the quota reform movement and an Independent Alliance announced their panel.

Leaders of the student organisations said their candidates submitted the nomination papers within the stipulated time fixed by the university authorities.

Meanwhile, the ‘rebel panel’ of BCL withdrew its panel from the poll following a meeting with the Awami League high-ups on Monday night at the party office.

The decision was announced by the panel members, who are also former Chhatra League leaders.

Sohan Khan, aspirant for vice-president position of the rebel faction at a media briefing said that they held a meeting with the central committee members of the party and would work for the Sheikh Hasina nominated panel of Chhatra League and make them victorious. Earlier on Sunday, BCL central president Rezwanul Haque Chowdhury Shovon, its general secretary Golam Rabbani and its DU unit general secretary Saddam Hussain were announced as vice-president, general secretary and assistant general secretary, respectively for the long-awaited polls.
