Today was the last day of withdrawal of the nomination paper and the last time was 5 pm. At that time two candidates – Zakir Hossain Babul of Uttar Baridhara Club and Saidur Rahman Manik of Ajampur Football Club – withdrew their nomination paper from member post.
The withdrawal of nomination paper by two candidates means forty seven candidates will now contest in the election. Among them three for one president posts, two for one senior vice president posts, eight for four vice president posts and thirty four for fifteen member posts.
The election commission will publish the final candidate list tomorrow (Sunday) at 3 pm.
It was initially assumed the upcoming BFF election was going to be a one-sided but, now the scenario is different after forty seven candidates are going to contest October 3 polls which means that the election is spreading heat and will be held in all twenty one posts.
