BNP has decided to back its standing committee member Mirza Abbas for the upcoming mayoral race in Dhaka South City Corporation scheduled for April 28.
Prof Emajuddin Ahmed made the disclosure to reporters after emerging from a meeting with BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia at her Gulshan office this evening.
“The party’s higher authority has finalised to support Mirza Abbas in the mayoral race of the DSCC polls. However, the party is yet to decide whom to support in the DNCC mayoral race,” he said.
