Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JaSoD) has proposed to constitute the Election Commission (EC) and the search committee to recommend the names of the commissioners with people who believe in the Liberation War ideals and the four fundamental principles of the Constitution.
A 12-strong JaSoD delegation, led by its chief and Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu, placed the proposal at the dialogue with President Md Abdul Hamid at the Bangabhaban on Monday.
After the meeting that lasted around an hour at the Darbar Hall, President’s Press Secretary Md Joynal Abedin briefed the media about the talks.
“The delegation proposed to form the Search Committee and the Election Commission who believe in the Liberation War spirit and the four fundamental principles of the Constitution,” he said.
JaSoD General Secretary Shirin Akhter placed the seven-point proposal.
Abedin said JaSoD’s other proposals include fixing a permanent process to form the EC and ensuring representation of women in the EC and the Search Committee.
“The president welcomed the JaSoD’s proposal and said their thoughtful views will be helpful in forming the EC,” Abedin said.
“It will be possible to form a strong Election Commission with cooperation by all the political parties,” he quoted the president as saying.
The other members of the JaSoD delegation were its Executive President Robiul Alam, Vice-Presidents Mir Hossain Akhter, Iqbal Hossain Khan, Habibur Rahman Shawkat, Shah Zikrul Ahmed, Standing Committee Members Dr Anwar Hossain, Nurul Akhter, Nader Chowdhury, Mosharraf Hossain, and Advisory Council Member MA Karim.
