AL to choose most acceptable candidate for DNCC polls: Quader

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Monday said his party would like to nominate an acceptable candidate in the forthcoming mayoral election to Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC).

“On the basis of surveys of different organizations and the decision of the party’s nomination board, the person who has highest acceptability will get the nomination from Awami League,” Quader told reporters after inaugurating a foot over-bridge at Hemayetpur on the city’s outskirt Savar on Dhaka-Aricha highway.

He said the party has more than one eligible candidates who either directly does politics or are outside the party with leaning towards Awami League.

The AL general secretary said the next DNCC mayoral polls will be held under the party-banner for the first time.

Savar Upazila acting chairman Fakhrul Alam Samor and local AL leaders and workers were present on the occasion.
