BNP assistant international affairs secretary barrister Rumeen Farhana is going to be elected MP from a seat reserved for women in parliament.

BNP got one reserved seat for women in proportionate to its five elected parliament members.

Rumeen, also daughter of late Language Movement hero Oli Ahad, submitted her nomination form to the Election Commission on Monday, UNB reports.

Rumeen said she submitted her nomination form to returning officer Abul Kashem around 1:15 pm as her party picked her as a lone candidate for the election to the seat.

Once she takes oath as an MP, Rumeen said, she will place in parliament the demand for the release of BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia.

Expressing her gratitude to the party for nominating her for the seat, Rumeen said she will perform her duty as an opposition MP with sincerity and honesty.

As per the election schedule announced by the EC on May 8, today (Monday) is the last day for BNP to field its candidate in the reserved seat for women.

The election is scheduled to be held on June 16 while the date for scrutinising nomination papers is May 21 and the withdrawal of candidature is May 28.

As BNP nominated only one candidate, Rumeen will be declared elected just after the expiry of the deadline for the withdrawal of candidature, said EC officials.

The 50 seats reserved exclusively for women in parliament are distributed among political parties in proportionate to their number of seats in parliament.

Since five BNP MPs-elect took oath at the last moment of the stipulated time, the EC is arranging the election to the seat the party got.

The EC earlier completed the polls to the remaining 49 reserved seats.

Among the reserved seats, 43 women MPs were elected from ruling Awami League, four from the main opposition Jatiya Party, one from Workers’ Party and one independent.
