Elections in the 1990sEdit
In 1998, Sheikh Hasina made Md. Alauddin a state minister in her government. This led to his expulsion from the BNP, and to the Election Commission declaring his seat vacant on 11 October 1999 under Article 70 of the Constitution, which penalizes floor-crossing. This triggered a by-election in late 1999, which Alauddin won as an Awami League candidate.
