By-polls: AL to sell nomination forms from Friday
The ruling party -- Awami League -- will start selling nomination forms for by-polls to parliamentary constituencies of Dhaka-14, Sylhet-3, and Cumilla-5 from Friday.
Aspiring candidates will be able to collect the forms from Awami League President Sheikh Hasina's political office in Dhanmondi between 11:00 am and 5:00 pm, the party said in a release.
Awami League has also asked the aspiring MP candidates to strictly adhere to all Covid-safety protocols during the collection and submission of the nomination forms.
The party has also instructed all the aspiring MP candidates to carry their National Identity Card (NID).
The sale nomination forms will continue till June 10.
The three parliamentary seats became vacant due to the deaths of the respective MPs. Sylhet-3 MP Mahmud Us Samad passed away on March 11, Dhaka-14 MP Aslamul Haque on April 4 and Comilla-5 MP Abdul Matin Khasru on April 14.
As voting in these parliamentary constituencies could not take place in the first 90 days due to the Covid-19 lockdown in the country, the by-polls are slated for next month.
According to the schedule announced by the Election Commission, the by-polls to the three constituencies will be held on July 14.
