Papon wants a keenly-contested BCB election

BSS, Dhaka
Papon wants a keenly-contested BCB election

Incumbent Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon wants the upcoming election of the board of directors to be open and keenly contested ashe refused to come up with any panel.

   At the same time, he also showed his reluctance to be the BCB president again, saying that "we should have a pipeline where new leadership will come."

   Papon first assumed the power is BCB In 2012 when Bangladesh government nominated his as the president. He however was the first elected president of the BCBwhen he came to the power uncontested in 2013.

In 2017 election, he was elected uncontested as no one gives any panel against him. This seemed to irk him to such extent that he now doesn't want to continue aspresident. But he said he doesn't have any problem to be the director of the board. 

   The directors of the board in fact elect the BCB president in the first meeting after the election as the constitution. 

   "One thing is clear to me that no one will stand in this position (President) until I die, this is what I believe," he said after an emergency meeting of the board today.

"Let everyone who comes on board challenge me. I want someone say, 'I want  to be president,' but no one says! It's not a good sign. Nothing is stopped for anyone. We should have a pipeline where new leadership will come. There  are people to lead but sadly, no one wants to come. No one stands when the panel is given. It is becoming uncontested. Let the election be open," he added. 

   Papon said the trend should be changed and election should be held this time around.

   "I don't have a panel. Whoever wishes can contest in the polls. There will be an election and it will be open. Anyone can come here if he is elected. If I win in theelection, I will become a director. But what will be my first request after the election, is that I don't want to be president. But I am here to support. I don't know whathappens next. Every time there is a panel, no one contests when the panel is given. Since the election is open now, no one can say he is my candidate. I hope thistime the election will be held."

   A total of 25 directors will be elected through an election, which is likely to be held in the first week of October.

   The BCB had already formed a five-member election commission with M Farhad Hussain, FCA, former President Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh(ICAB) as Chief Election Commissioner. The other members of the commission are Omar Faruque, ndc, former Joint Secretary of theBangladesh Government, Barrister Muddasir Hossain, Legal Advisor BCB, Ekramul Hoque, 


Advocate Bangladesh Supreme Court and former Deputy Attorney General for Bangladesh and Nizamuddin Chowdhury, CEO BCB . 

   Meanwhile, the councilorship of former captains and cricketers has been finalized. Roqibul Hasan, Faruk Ahmed, Minhazul Abedin Nannu, Habibul Bashar and RajinSaleh have been elected in the quota of five former captains. The ten former cricketers are Khaled Mahmud Sujan, Selim Shahed, Sajjad AhmedShipon,Ahsanullah Hasan, Nafis Iqbal, Talha Jubayer, Faisal Hossain Dickens, Abdur Razzak, Hannan Sarkar and Azam Iqbal.

   BCB has received the list of names of club category councilors. There is no possibility of voting in this category. 12 directors from clubs can be elected without contest. Jalal Yunus and Ahmed Sajjadul Alam Bobby are the  directors in the quota of the National Sports Council (NSC). The top six  clubs of Dhaka Premier League (DPL), who made it to the super six in the  preceding year of DPL have two councilors as per the constitution. DPL champions Abahani picked up BCB president NazmulHassan Papon and Shayan Rahman as their councilors. Mohammedan's councilors are BCB director Mahbub Anam and Masuduzzman. The electioncommission however will publish the full list of the councilors later.
