Awami League has started selling nomination papers for the mayoral by-polls to Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) from Saturday.
Rasel Asheki and Adom Tamiji Huq collected the nomination papers from the party president Sheikh Hasina's Dhanmondi political office, according to a party press release.
Meanwhile Atiqul Islam, former-president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, are expected to collect the nomination papers this evening, party sources said.
However, DNCC mayor post fell vacant after the death of Annisul Huq at a London hospital on November 30.
The ruling AL is likely to nominate Atiqul Islam, former-president of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association, as its candidate, while the BNP is expected to pick party leader Tabith Awal, who ran against AL contender Annisul in the previous election.
