Awami League yesterday nominated Afruza Bari and Badruddoza Md Farhad Hossain Sangram to contest the Gaibandha-1 (Sundarganj) and Brahmmanbaria-1 (Nasirnagar) by-elections respectively slated for March 13, reports BSS. The nomination was finalised at a meeting of the Awami League Parliamentary Board (ALPB) held at Ganabhaban, the official residence of the prime minister, yesterday evening with the ALPB chief and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in chair. "The ALPB unanimously nominated Afruza Bari and Badruddoza Md Farhad Hossain Sangram to contest the Gaibandha-1 (Sundarganj) and Brahmmanbaria-1 (Nasirnagar) by-elections respectively," an Awami League press release signed by Office Secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap said.

The Election Commission on February 4 announced by-polls schedules for the two parliamentary seats. According to the schedule, the deadline for submission of nomination papers is February 14, while the date for scrutinizing the nomination papers is February 16 and the last date for withdrawal of candidature is February 23.

The Brahmmanbaria-1 constituency fell vacant following the death of Fisheries and Livestock Minister Muhammad Sayedul Haque on December 16, while the Gaibandha-1 fell vacant following the death of Golam Mostafa on December 19 last. The Rangpur Regional Election Officer has been appointed as the returning officer for Gaibandha-1 by-election, while the Comilla Regional Election Officer for Brahmmanbaria-1 by-polls.
