In many places, Awami League members of parliament are not publicly announcing any candidates, but they are internally supporting people of their choice. For example, former MP Dabirul Islam's younger brother Safiqul Islam is running as a candidate in Thakurgaon's Baliadangi upazila. There is talk that the current MP Mazharul Islam is supporting his uncle Safiqul Islam.

Sohail Rana is known as the candidate supported by Member of Parliament Shibli Sadiq in Birampur Upazila of Dinajpur. There is talk that Shibli Sadik has also supported Kazi Shubo Rahman Chowdhury, a member of Upazila Awami League in Ghoraghat, as the chairman candidate.

There is discussion that Chuadanga-2 Constituency Member of Parliament Ali Azgar is supporting the two present chairmen in Damurhuda and Jibannagar. Amir Hossain Amu, Member of Parliament for Jhalkathi-2 Constituency in Jhalkathi Sadar Upazila, has not publicly supported anyone. However, the current chairman Khan Arifur Rahman is known to support him.

In Dhaka's Keraniganj, the current chairman and president of South Keraniganj Thana Awami League, Shaheen Ahmed is known to be supported by Minister of State for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid, and the general secretary of Keraniganj Model Thana Awami League, Altaf Hossain, is known as the candidate supported by former food minister Kamrul Islam.

Awami League does not want party parliamentarians to influence local government elections. At the beginning of the discussion with the leaders of the Rangpur division at the Awami League's central office on Bangabandhu Avenue yesterday, Obaidul Quader, the party's general secretary, said, 'I am an MP, I will spread influence. I will have one, the whole process will be interrupted to win him, it can't be. Any interference will not be tolerated.'
