BNP to back Mirza Abbas for Dhaka South mayor, says Emajuddin

The party on Sunday will also decide on a candidate whom it will back in Dhaka North City Corporation election, according to the pro-BNP academic.

Ahamed told reporters of the decisions on Saturday night after meeting with BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia at her Gulshan office.

“We want to build an ideal Dhaka. The BNP has decided to back Mirza Abbas in Dhaka South,” he said.

The former Dhaka University vice-chancellor said, “The party will choose an aspirant to support for Dhaka North after the court gives its ruling on the issue of the cancellation of Abdul Awal Mintoo’s nominations.”

The BNP chief’s Adviser Mintoo had submitted nomination papers to contest for Dhaka North City Corporation mayor.

But Dhaka North City Corporation polls Returning Officer Md Shah Alam rejected his nominations on Wednesday as Abdur Razzak, who signed in the form as Mintoo’s supporter, was not a voter of Dhaka North.

Mintoo had filed an appeal with the office of Dhaka’s Divisional Commissioner, which has been made the appellate authority by the Election Commission. But the plea was quashed on Saturday.

The BNP leader’s counsellors said that they would move the court against the rejection of Mintoo’s nominations.

Emajuddiin Ahamed, however, dodged a direct answer when asked whom the BNP would back if Mintoo fails to alter the Election Commission’s decision.

“There are many other qualified candidates. It will be decided tomorrow (Sunday),” he said.
