Mansur, Mukabbir takes oath tomorrow

06 March 2019 bdnews24.com


The Jatiya Oikya Front MPs-elect Sultan Muhammed Mansur and Mukabbir Khan may defy the coalition decision and take their oaths of office in parliament on Thursday.
Their swearing-in ceremony will take place in the speaker's office around 11 am on March 7, the Parliament Secretariat said on Tuesday.
In the Dec 30 polls, Sultan Mansur was elected from the Moulvibazar-2 seat with the ticket of the Jatiya Oikya Front under the paddy sheaf symbol while Mukabbir Khan ran under the Gono Forum's 'rising sun' symbol. As part of the Jatiya Oikya Front alliance led by Dr Kamal Hossain, the BNP could only manage six seats in the Dec 30 polls.
The alliance rejected the outcome of the polls after raising allegations of rigging with the Election Commission and said their candidates, who won the elections, would not take oath as MPs.
Dr Kamal initially took the interests of the two leaders of his party as 'positive', but changed his tone after a meeting with the BNP leaders.
On Sunday, Gono Forum General Secretary Mostafa Mohsin Montu told reporters: "We will take legal actions against them if they take oaths."
