Rakibur Rahman has been elected one of the directors of Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE). Currently he is serving Midway Securities Limited as its managing director.
Out of total 242 voters, 220 cast their votes at the DSE premises in Motijheel on Tuesday. Three votes were announced invalid.
Rahman replaced managing director of Sharif Anowar Hossain who retired from the 13-member DSE board this year as per a demutualisation scheme.
The newly elected director will join the board at the DSE's annual general meeting scheduled for March 24.
A retired High Court judge, Justice Md Abdus Samad, acted as the chairman of the DSE's election commission.
The DSE board consists of seven independent directors, four shareholder directors, one from the strategic investors' category, and the bourse's managing director, who would have voting rights only for election of the chairman.
