There is a possibility of holding by-elections in Laxmipur-2 constituency before Roza. Election Commissioner Kabita Khanam said that a decision may be taken to hold elections in Laxmipur-2 constituency before Roza if 90 days have passed. He told reporters at his office at the Election Building in the capital’s Agargaon on Tuesday (February 23rd).
Shahid Islam, elected from Laxmipur-2, was disqualified after being sentenced to four years rigorous imprisonment for criminal offenses of moral turpitude. The Jatiya Sangsad Secretariat declared the seat vacant and published a gazette on Monday. Which was sent to the Election Commission on the same day to take necessary action.
If a parliamentary seat is declared vacant, there is an obligation to hold elections in that seat within the next 90 days. The Parliament Secretariat has issued a notification declaring the Laxmipur-2 seat vacant from January 26. In that case, there is an obligation to hold by-elections in this constituency by April 28.
Asked about this, Election Commissioner Kabita Khanam said they have received a letter from the Parliament Secretariat. The Election Commission will hold a meeting soon regarding the election in that constituency. Only then will the final decision be made. He said there is fasting since the front. Fasting must be taken into consideration. No election is usually given during Ramadan. It probably won’t be given either. A decision on the matter cannot be made until the commission is sitting. If 90 days have elapsed since the election, there is a possibility that the election will be held before the election. However, the final decision will be known after the commission sits.
I hope you are in health and well.
