AL nominates Sohel Hazari for Tangail-4 by-poll

The ruling Awami League has nominated Hasan Imam Khan Sohel Hazari as its candidate for the by-election to Tangail-4 constituency to be held on November 10.

The decision came at a parliamentary board meeting chaired by AL President Sheikh Hasina, who is also the prime minister, at Gono Bhaban this evening.

Sohel Hazari was Kalihati upazila chairman.

A total of 19 aspirants collected the nomination forms to contest the election.

The by-poll to the constituency, which has been vacant since sacked minister Abdul Latif Siddique resigned from the parliament on September 1, will be held on November 10.

Over 2.77 lakh voters are entitled to exercise their franchise in the constituency.

Latif Siddique was expelled from the ruling Awami League and the cabinet for his “anti-religion remarks” made in the US in September last year.
