BNP picks Salahuddin, Rezaul for Dhaka-5, Naogaon-6 by-polls

Bangladesh Nationalist Party–BNP on Sunday (Sep 13) picked Salahuddin Ahmed and Sheikh Mohammad Rezaul Islam as its candidates to contest the Dhaka-5 and Naogaon-6 by-elections respectively.

A day after BNP’s nomination board or party standing committee took virtual interviews of the party aspirants, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir announced the names of the candidates of “Sheaf of Paddy’ for the two by-polls, local media reported.

BNP chairperson’s media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan said Salahuddin is the commerce affairs secretary of BNP and a three-time former MP while Rezaul is the party’s Naogaon unit convening committee member.

The party, however, did not disclose the names of its nominated candidates for Dhaka-18 and Sirajganj-1 by-polls since the Election Commission did not yet announce the schedule.

As per the schedule announced by Bangladesh Election Commission, the by-polls to Dhaka-5 and Naogaon-6 will be held on Oct 17.
