Khaleda to sit with BNP policymakers Saturday

BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia is going to sit in a meeting with her party's standing committee members on Saturday night to finalise the party’s candidate for the by-polls to Dhaka North City Corporation mayoral post. 


The meeting will be held at the BNP chief's Gulshan office around 8:30 pm, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi informed on Wednesday, reports UNB.


A party standing committee member, wishing anonymity, said the meeting has been convened mainly to finalise the party’s mayoral candidate for the DNCC by-polls.


He said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir may formally announce the name of the BNP candidate after the meeting.


Earlier on Monday night, the   BNP chief had a meeting with the top leaders of her party-led 20-party alliance.


At the meeting, the alliance leaders assured Khaleda of extending their support to the BNP candidate she will nominate to contest the by-election.
