Following the formation of Gazipur City Corporation in 2013, Azmat Ullah Khan and Jahangir Alam were made the president and general secretary in 2015 without holding any council. Azmat Ullah Khan, existing president of Gazipur city AL, and Zahid Ahsan Russell, state minister for youth and sports and a lawmaker from Gazipur-2, are among those whose names are in discussion for the post of president. Besides, the names that have come up for discussion for the post of general secretary are Sajjad Hossain, former president of Dhaka University Chhatra League; and Ataullah Mondal, acting general secretary of the existing committee. Zahid Ahsan, also convener of the conference preparation committee, said they expect several lakh people would join the council. "As the national election draws near, we have taken this conference very seriously. Only the tested and suitable persons will be elected as the leaders of Gazipur city Awami League," he added. On November, 2021, Gazipur City Corporation Mayor Mohammad Zahangir Alam, also the general secretary of Gazipur city AL, was expelled from the party for his controversial comments on Bangabandhu and Liberation War martyrs.
