Nuruzzaman gets AL ticket in Pabna-4 by polls

Bangladesh Awami League (AL) today nominated Md Nuruzzaman Biswas as the party candidate to contest the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Pabna-4 by-election slated for September 26.

The nomination was finalized at a meeting of the AL Parliamentary Board (ALPB) held at Ganabhaban, the official residence of the prime minister, this afternoon.

AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina chaired the meeting, while other members of the board were present.

The Pabna-4 (Atgharia-Ishwardi) JS seat fell vacant following the death of AL lawmaker Shamsur Rahman Sherif on April 2.

The Election Commission (EC) announced the by-polls schedule at Nirbachan Bhaban on August 23.

According to the EC schedule, the last date for the collection of the nomination form is September 2, while nomination papers will be scrutinized on September 3.

The last date for withdrawal of nomination papers is September 8. The EC said ballot papers will be used in taking votes in the by-polls.

Awami League deputy office secretary Sayem Khan said the Nomination Board would decide later on the issue of Awami League nominees in the remaining four by-elections.
