Bar association voting field is crowded

Elections to the Supreme Court Lawyers Association, the most influential body of lawyers, will be held on Wednesday and Thursday. The tension around the two-day polls is at its peak. Both the panels of pro-Awami League and pro-BNP lawyers are giving the impression of a fierce fight. However, no party wants the involvement of law enforcement in this election.

The white and blue panel of Awami League and pro-BNP lawyers is determined to erase the stain of the questionable election of 2022. Still, both parties are watching the polls on Wednesday and Thursday.

The two senior lawyers who are candidates for president say that it is not only party supporters who vote for lawyers. Personal charisma will be the key factor in winning.

Awami League supported panel president candidate Abu Saeed Sagar says, ‘All the people of my party vote for me. Along with that I also got some independent votes. I don’t want to name names. There are several leaders of BNP, with whom I have spoken.

BNP supported panel president candidate Mahbub Uddin Khokon said, ‘We hope that the panel we have will win.’

Meanwhile, the editor candidate of the white panel, Shah Manjurul, is promising to fulfill the various demands of the lawyers. And, Ruhul Quddus of Blue Panel is highlighting his various achievements in the past days. In addition to the intense fight, the two also have counter-complaints.

Ruhul Quddus Kajal, editor candidate of the BNP supported panel said, “All the candidates have already said that no outside police can enter the Supreme Court Bar Association elections. Because these illegal forces have occupied the Supreme Court Bar Association with the help of the police. So this is our main demand. We will hold elections in our own festive atmosphere.’

Awami League-backed panel editor candidate Shah Manjurul Haque said, ‘The election will be completely peaceful and fully participatory. Everyone is ready to vote in a festive atmosphere for two days. But provocative statements are being given in different places by the opposition. I would say that they should not make such a statement.

Meanwhile, another editor candidate from the Awami family, Nahid Sultana Yuthi, made the election even more difficult. This independent candidate said, ‘I stood in the election because of the urge of conscience. In fact, we need a fair election, we need an influence-free election.’

7 thousand 883 lawyers will vote in this election.
