BNP starts interview of nomination seekers Sunday

Star Online Report

BNP has announced to start interview of the party’s nomination seekers for the 11th parliamentary election from Sunday.

The party’s Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi came up with the announcement at a press conference at BNP’s Naya Paltan central office in Dhaka today.

The interview will be held at the party Chairperson Khaleda Zia’s Gulshan office in the capital, he said.

Rizvi also said the deadline for collecting and submitting nomination papers will end today.

The main political opposition started selling nomination papers among the aspirants from its Naya Paltan headquarters on November 12 as the Election Commission deferred the date of the upcoming national election to December 30 from December 23.

WHEN IS THE ELECTION?

Election Commission has revised polls schedule, deferring the 11th general election by a week to December 30 – a decision taken earlier this week.

The authorities have fixed November 28 as the deadline for filing nomination papers, December 2 for scrutiny and December 9 last date of withdrawal.

The move came following demands from several opposition political parties.
