The election schedule for reserved women’s seats in the 12th National Parliament is being announced this month. Election of 50 seats will be held in the first session of the Parliament. Election Commissioner Anisur Rahman said these things in a press conference held at the election building on Monday.
Leaders, professionals and stars of Awami League and Jatiya Party affiliates and affiliates are lobbying hard to become reserved MPs. Leaders say that only those who are dedicated to the party will be made members of Parliament.
There are 50 seats reserved for women in the National Parliament. Members of parliament are elected in these seats in proportion to the number of seats a party gets. According to the constitution, if a political party has six elected members of parliament, a reserved woman MP of that party can be elected.
As such, Awami League will get 37 and Jatiya Party two reserved women MPs in the twelfth parliament. Apart from this, if 62 independent parliamentarians form a coalition, or six separate coalition members nominate candidates, then they will get 10 seats.
Leaders of various levels have already started lobbying to become reserved MPs of Awami League. Leaders of the party said that sacrifices and trials will prevail. New faces may come.
Awami League presidium member Jahangir Kabir Nanak said that the Prime Minister has always given importance to the members who have sacrificed, tried and stood by the party in bad times, and will do so this time as well.
Awami League presidium member Abdur Rahman said that only those who are dedicated to the party will get importance. New faces may come.
Jatiya Party Secretary General Mojibul Haque Chunnu said that both those who can play a strong role in the Parliament will get a chance in reserved seats.
There is a glimpse that many of those who became MPs in the 11th parliament under women quota may not be there this time.
