Although it was decided not to give party nominations in the upazila parishad elections, the State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief announced the names of two people as ‘party candidates’ of Awami League for Kalapara upazila parishad of Patuakhali. Mohibbur Rahman.

He made this announcement at a discussion meeting organized by Kuakata Municipality and Municipal Awami League at the Youth Inn premises of Kuakata Tourism Center on Tuesday afternoon on the occasion of Independence Day. At that time, he introduced the two in front of everyone present.

According to the decision of the Central Executive Council of Awami League, Awami League will not give party nominations in the local government elections including the upcoming Upazila Parishad elections. The leaders of the party can choose as they like. Party leaders can vote for any candidate.

State Minister Mohibbur Rahman said at yesterday’s event, “In the upcoming upazila elections, we have decided that we have announced Awami League’s revolutionary general secretary and martyred leader Abdul Motaleb Talukdar as a candidate from the party, from Awami League, as the upazila chairman.” Apart from this, as the vice chairman of the Upazila Awami League Office Secretary Md.

He said that there will be many candidates in the election, but he has announced two leaders who have worked for the party and kept the party going in the difficult times as candidates from the party.

It is known that several leaders of upazila Awami League and allied organizations will be elected for the post of chairman and vice chairman ahead of the Kalapara upazila parishad election. Many of the candidates are spending a busy time mass connecting with the grassroots voters in

various haat-bazaars. In such a situation, many have termed such announcement of the state minister as ‘against party discipline’.

Jubo League central committee organizing secretary Shamim Al Saiful is doing mass communication locally to participate in the election for the post of upazila chairman. In response to the state minister’s statement, he told Prothom Alo, “Being a state minister, he cannot declare anyone as a candidate of the party at his own whim, going beyond the decision of the party.” Because, the president of the party and the honorable prime minister have already said that all local council elections including the upazila elections will be held without party symbols. None shall be party nominee.

Jubo League leader Shamim felt that a member of parliament elected from the party later became a state minister and announced his candidacy in a public meeting. They said that they have informed the president, general secretary and other high level leaders of the party in this regard.

Syed Akhtaruzzaman, the former chairman of Tiakhali Union Parishad, has shown his interest in the election for the post of chairman in the Upazila Parishad. He expressed his anger at the announcement of the candidate of the state minister and said, “Last time I lost by a small vote.” This time also I have prepared to be elected for the post of chairman. Suddenly, the state minister announced a candidate, it cannot happen. He did this by breaking party rules. We will hold a press conference and protest.

State Minister for Disaster Management and Relief Md. Mohibbur Rahman told Prothom Alo today on Wednesday afternoon, ‘They are candidates from our party, they want to stand, I have said that. There is no opportunity to give party candidates.
