>direct election for reserved women seats

>LGRD and Cooperatives Minister Syed Ashraful Islam today said the constitution would be amended to stage direct polls for reserved women seats in parliament.
“We will amend the constitution so that women can come to parliament being elected from next parliament,” said Ashraful, also spokesperson of the Awami League (AL).
Speaking at the inauguration of the form distribution for the women reserved seats at the AL’s Dhanmondi office, he said there would be no seats reserved for women in next parliament and they would be elected through direct elections.
The AL believes that women should come to parliament through direct elections and it also remains in the AL’s election manifesto, Ashraful said.
The forms could be collected and submitted at the AL office from 11:00am to 4:00pm till February 18.
Each aspirant must pay a non-refundable deposit of Tk 10,000 for a nomination form.
