Staff Reporter

Awami League will nominate candidates in 48, out of the total 50 reserved seats, for women in the 12th parliament, while JaPa will nominate candidates in two reserved seats.

A team of AL led by AL organising secretary and whip of the parliament Abu Sayeed Al Mahmood Swapan on Wednesday handed over a letter, signed by AL general secretary Obaidul Quader, to the Election Commission secretary Jahangir Alam on behalf of 14-party alliance and independent lawmakers.

On Sunday, independent MPs, during a meeting with Awami League President Sheikh Hasina, left the decision of nominating independent candidates for reserved seats in the hands of the Premier.

AL office secretary Barrister Biplab Barua and deputy office secretary Sayem Khan, among others, accompanied the whip.
