Awami League candidates win Dhaka-5, Naogaon-6 by-polls

Awami League nominated candidates have won unofficially in the by-elections of two vacant seats of Jatiya Sangsad.

Voting took place at Dhaka-5 and Naogaon-6 contituencies from 9:00am to 5:00pm without any break on Saturday. After the counting of votes, Kazi Monirul Islam was declared elected in Dhaka-5 while Anwar Hossain Helal in Naogaon-6 constituencies.

However, one of the two BNP candidates announced boycotting the by-polls before the ending of vote casting, while the other rejected the results after the evening. The presence of the voters in the by-elections was comparatively less. No untoward incident has happened anywhere. The voting was taken place through the electronic voting machines (EVMs). The presence of voters in Naogaon-6 constituency was 35 per cent, while nearly 10 per cent in Dhaka, said the Election Commission officials.
