Zakia Noor takes oath as MP

Dr Syeda Zakia Noor Lipi, who was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) uncontested from Kishoreganj-1 constituency, took oath at the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Bhaban here yesterday.

Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury administered the oath of office to the MP elected on Awami League ticket, said an official release.

JS Senior Secretary Dr Zafar Ahmed Khan conducted the oath taking ceremony while Chief Whip Noor-E-Alam Chowdhury and Whip Iqbalur Rahim were present the function. Zakia Noor, younger sister of former Awami League general secretary and public administration minister late Syed Ashraful Islam, was elected Member of Parliament from Kishoreganj-1 constituency in a re-election as the constituency fell vacant following the death of Syed Ashraf. Ashraf, son of acting president of Bangladesh during the Liberation War and one of the four national leaders Syed Nazrul Islam, was elected as MP from the constituency for fifth consecutive term in December 30 polls.
