The sale of nomination forms has been relaxed. The party, which is in power for the third time during a row, has taken a replacement decision to interrupt the circle of influential leaders at the MP-ministerial and district-Upazila levels and stop the nomination ‘trade’.
In the second round of municipal elections, the Awami League has ‘opened’ tons of nomination papers to field party leaders and activists who are hard-working, hard-working, tested, and active within the field movement against the BNP-Jamaat alliance government.
In that case, albeit there’s no name within the list sent by the Trinamool, the leaders hoping for the post of mayor are going to be ready to collect the nomination papers of the party. For this, the interested parties need to take the advice of the presidium member responsible of the department, joint general secretary, organizational secretary, or central leader.
Earlier, nobody outside the list of three members sent by the Trinamool Awami League could purchase nomination forms.
According to sources, the party’s central and divisional leaders held an unscheduled meeting at the Awami League president’s office in Dhanmondi on Tuesday night before the municipal elections. At that unscheduled meeting, internal quarrels of the party came up within the upcoming municipal elections. especially , within the resolution of the Trinamool organization, to offer the name of the nominee, ‘Commerce’, sending the name of the ‘close’ unpopular candidate, referred to as the person on the brink of the MP-ministers, arbitrariness of district-Upazila-municipal Awami League leaders, syndicating senior Trinamool leaders. Many deprived leaders have already verbally complained to the departmental officials.
Complaints of these who couldn’t get party nominations in 25 municipalities within the first phase, ministers-MPs and senior Trinamool leaders didn’t send the names of other candidates to the middle albeit they were ‘popular’ outside their respective syndicates. they’re tactfully holding back the dedicated and tested leaders of the grassroots. within the name of selected candidates through grassroots voting, large financial transactions also are administered , which dedicated workers or leaders cannot handle thanks to hybrids and relatives of MP-ministers. that’s why the Awami League has relaxed the sale of forms for the candidates whose names aren’t within the resolution of the grassroots organization.
A top leader of the Awami League came to the political office of the party president yesterday afternoon. He instructed the party leaders and staff of the president’s office involved within the sale of nominations, saying, “Even if the names aren’t sent from the grassroots, the party leaders and workers are going to be ready to collect nomination forms.” Anyone who involves the party president’s office to gather the party’s nomination form should tend the nomination form. He added that the condition should include the advice of the departmental, presidium, joint general secretary, organizational secretary, or any central leader. ‘Several leaders present at the Dhanmondi office confirmed the knowledge .
In this regard, Awami League joint-general secretary AFM Bahauddin Nasim said, “There has been some relaxation within the distribution of party nomination forms within the municipal elections.” If anyone is curious about getting party nominations outside the list sent by our grassroots for the nomination, then there should be a recommendation of Awami League divisional organizational secretary, joint general secretary, or senior leaders of the party’s central committee. Then the interested leaders who are out of the list sent by the Trinamool are going to be ready to take the nomination form.
He said the difficulty of leaders purchasing nomination forms on the advice of central and senior leaders would be presented separately at the Nomination committee meeting . Candidates are going to be finalized by understanding the recognition and reality.
According to multiple Awami League sources, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the president of the Awami League, was within the hard-line in selecting the party candidates for the primary round of municipal elections. those that were rebel candidates within the last election weren’t nominated. The names of single candidates were sent to the three municipalities. But they were rebel candidates. Nominations are changed later when the knowledge is understood .
Excluding the names sent from the Trinamool and therefore the preferred candidates of the MP-ministers, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina directed to guage the favored and sacrificial people within the Trinamool. He also gave special responsibilities to some leaders for this.
