Outgoing Mayor of Dhaka South Sayeed Khokon has set his sights on winning the Awami League's nomination to contest the by-elections to the Dhaka-10 parliamentary seat vacated by his successor Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh.

Khokon, whose reelection hopes ended after the ruling party opted to back Taposh in the Dhaka polls, collected the Awami League's nomination form for the by-election from its Dhanmondi offices on Friday. "I have submitted the nomination form.

The decision now lies with the party," Khokon told afterwards. The by-polls to the seat will be held along with Bagerhat-4 and Gaibandha-3 on March 21.The deadline for nomination submission is Feb 19. The scrutiny of nominations will end on Feb 23 while the last date for withdrawing candidature is February 29.

The Bagerhat-4 and Gaibandha-3 constituencies were vacated after the deaths of its previous incumbents, Md Mozammel Hossain and Md Eunus Ali, respectively.
