AL’s Moslem wins Ctg-8 by-polls


Awami League (AL) backed candidate Moslem Uddin Ahmed has won the by-elections to Chattogram-8 constituency.

Returning Officer Md Hasanuzzaman announced the unofficial results after the vote count ended on Monday evening.

Moslem bagged 87,246 votes while his nearest rival BNP backed candidate Abu Sufian polled 17,935.

Earlier, voting in the by-polls was held from 9am to 5pm amid allegations of various irregularities, including polling centre capture by Awami League activists.

The BNP contestant also demanded suspension of the by-polls.

Chattogram-8 constituency is comprised of five wards (ward No 3-7) of Chittagong City Corporation and Boalkhali upazila, except Sripur and Kharandip unions.

There are 475,996 voters in the constituency.

The constituency fell vacant following the death of Moin Uddin Khan Badal, executive president of a faction of Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (Jasod), who died at a hospital in India on November 7 last at the age of 67.
