Sheikh Fazle Noor Taposh has resigned from his Member of Parliament (MP) post for the Dhaka 10 constituency, after being selected as Awami League's mayoral candidate for Dhaka South.

Later in the evening, the Parliament Secretariat also issued a gazette declaring the seat vacant.

According to the Election Commission, the mayoral and councillor aspirants of both DNCC and DSCC will have to submit their nomination papers to the commission by December 31.

The nomination papers will be scrutinized on January 2, while the aspirants will have until January 9 to withdraw their candidature.

Earlier on Sunday, Awami League chose the incumbent Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) Mayor Atiqul to run again for mayor of DNCC and picked its former MP Taposh to run for mayor of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC). Both elections are slated for January 30.
