The election to the board of directors of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) for 2017-19 tenure is scheduled to be held today at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre.
Voting will continue from 9am to 5pm while Election Board Chairman Prof Ali Ashraf will declare the results after vote count ends. Two panels are vying for 18 director posts. The panels include Sammilita Ganotantrik Parishad led by Shafiul Islam Mohiuddin and Babosayee Oikya Forum led by Abdul Motaleb. The board of directors will pick up the FBCCI president from the Association Group, one first vice-president from the Chamber Group and one vice-president from the Association Group.
Eligible voters will elect only 18 directors from the Association Group this time as directors from the Chamber Group have already been elected unopposed, according to the FBCCI election board.
