Awami League’s central executive council has decided not to field candidates in the sixth upazila parishad election. General secretary of the party, Obaidul Quader, gave this information to reporters on Monday.
Awami League presidium member and jute and textile minister Jahangir Kabir Nanak spoke to reporters about this on Tuesday.
Nanak told reporters at the secretariat, ‘Awami League has decided not to hold elections with party symbols in order to make the upazila elections universal. Right leadership will emerge through participatory elections.’
Nanak said about BNP coming to the elections, ‘BNP is actually welcome in the elections. The law will not be violated here.’
Obaidul Quader told reporters after the meeting of the central executive of Awami League at the Ganobhaban on Monday evening, “The party chief has ordered the departmental leaders to clear all the misunderstandings between the party candidates and those who are outside of the 12th National Assembly election.”
Obaidul Quader said, ‘The matter of reserved women’s seats has not been decided yet, but a decision will be taken in the party meeting very soon. The decision of the party president is final in the selection of party candidates.
