Presidential election: Speaker, CEC meeting On Wednesday
Parliament Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury and Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda are scheduled to meet on Wednesday to discuss the presidential election at the Secretariat. Acting secretary of Election Commission Helaluddin Ahmed said: “The Election Commission sent a letter to the Parliament Secretariat seeking permission for a meeting with the speaker. Later, the Parliament Secretariat confirmed the meeting through a returning letter.” The tenure of the current president, Abdul Hamid, will end on April 23, five years after he was sworn in as the country’s 20th president following the death from natural causes of Zillur Rahman. According to Section 123 (1) of the constitution, an election for the president’s successor must be held no sooner than 90 and no later than 60 days prior to the end of a full term – giving a deadline of February 22. Since the constitution stipulates that the president has to be elected by the members of parliament, a vote will take place during the ongoing 19th session, which is scheduled to run until February 28. However, no voting will be needed if there is only one candidate. The article was first published on banglatribune.com
