It has been reported that 17 leaders of the Awami League chairman candidates have collected party nomination papers in this year’s Zilla Parishad elections.

South District Awami League General Secretary Mofizur Rahman’s name was heard but in the end he did not collect the nomination papers.
Activists claim that four members of Parliament have given a DO letter to Awami League Chairperson Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to nominate a leader of South District Awami League for the post of chairman.
A number of senior leaders of the party said, in the Chittagong district council elections, in terms of party nomination for the post of chairman, Awami League presidium member Engineer Mosharraf Hossain, Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr. The choice of Hasan Mahmud and Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury Jabed will be important.
