AL, BNP candidates submit nomination papers for CCC polls

Awami League nominated mayor candidate Rezaul Karim Chowdhury and BNP's candidate Shahadat Hossain submitted their nomination papers to the returning officer of Chattogram City Corporation polls yesterday.

Yesterday was the last day of submission.

AL Chattogram city unit president Mahtab Uddin Chowdhury, vice president Khorshed Alam Sujan and general secretary AJM Nasir Uddin, among others, were with Rezaul during the submission.

Rezaul told journalists that he had respect for all candidates. "The stronger the candidates will be, the competition [in the polls] will gain more momentum," he said.

Meanwhile, Shahadat was also accompanied by senior BNP leaders. Afterwards, he told journalists that the administration "was favouring the AL candidate".

"The AL candidate gets permission to hold rally anywhere, but we can't," he said.

Shahadat also demanded that the polls date be changed as many people may leave the port city, getting four consecutive days of holidays from March 26.

"If the Election Commission wants to increase voter turnout, it should change the date to March 31 instead of March 29," he said.
