STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
AL names 41 for reserved JS seats

The ruling Awami League (AL) has finalised its list of candidates who will contest the elections to 50 seats exclusively reserved for women in the 11th parliament. The names were finalized at a joint meeting of the party's parliamentary board and local government nomination board chaired by AL President and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence Ganabhaban last night.

According to the 11th parliamentary poll results, 43 of the 50 seats are reserved for the Awami League, four for Jatiya Party, one for BNP and one for  Workers Party of Bangladesh . The reserved seats are allocated to political parties in proportion to their number of seats in parliament.

Emerging from the meeting, AL General Secretary Obaidul Quader held a briefing at Ganabhaban and announced names of 41 women candidates for the reserved seats. He also said that remaining two names will be announced later. However, party sources said the AL may leave the two seats for its alliance partners.

The 41 women candidates whose nominations were finalised are Anjum Sultana for Cumilla, Sultana Nadira for Barguna, Hosne Ara for Jamalpur, Rumana Joly for Gazipur, Umme Fatema Nazma Begum for Brahamanbaria, Habiba Rahman

Khan Shefali for Netrakona, Sheikh Any Rahman for Pirojpur, Aparajita Huq for Tangail, Shamima Akhter Khanam for Sunamganj, Shamsunnahar Bhuiyan for Gazipur, Fazilatun Nesa for Munshiganj, Rabeya Alim for Nilphamari, Tamanna Nusrat Bubli for Narsingdi, Nargis Rahman for Gopalganj, Monira Sultana for Mymensingh, Nahid Ijhar Khan for Dhaka, Khaleda Khanom for Jhenaidah, Syeda Rubina Mira for Barishal, Wasika Ayesha Khan for Chattogram, Kazi Kaniz Sultana for Patuakhali, Gloria Jharna Sarkar for Khulna, Subarna Mustafa for Dhaka, Zakia Tabassum for Dinajpur, Farida Khanom Saki for Noakhali, Basanti Chakma for Khagrachhari, Kaniz Fatema Ahmed for Cox’s Bazar, Rushela Begum for Faridpur, Syeda Rashida Begum for Kushtia, Syeda Zohora Alauddin for Moulvibazar, Adina Anjuman Mita for Rajshahi, Aroma Dutta for Cumilla, Shirina Nahar for Khulna, Ferdousi Islam Jensi for Chapainawabganj, Parvin Huq Shikder for Shariatpur, Khadeja Nusrat for Rajbari, Shabnam Jahan Shila for Dhaka, Khadizatul Anwar for Chattogram, Zakia Parvin Khanam for Netrakona, Tahmina Begum for Madaripur, Shirin Ahmed for Dhaka and Jinnatul Bakia for Dhaka.

The Election Commission (EC) will announce election schedules on February 17 for the 50 reserved seats of the 11th parliament. , exclusively for women.

Since the MPs of the women's reserved seats are elected by the directly elected members of parliament, and as the Awami League enjoys an absolute majority in the House, the question of votes is irrelevant here.

Notably, there had been no voting for electing the reserved women MPs in the last three parliaments.
