Zakia Noor takes oath as MP

DHAKA, Feb 16, 2019 (BSS) – Dr Syeda Zakia Noor Lipi, who was elected as
Member of Parliament (MP) uncontested from Kishoreganj-1 constituency, took
oath at the Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Bhaban here today.

Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury administered the
oath of office to the MP elected on Awami League ticket, said an official
release.

JS Senior Secretary Dr Zafar Ahmed Khan conducted the oath taking ceremony
while Chief Whip Noor-E-Alam Chowdhury and Whip Iqbalur Rahim were present
the function.

Zakia Noor, younger sister of former Awami League general secretary and
public administration minister late Syed Ashraful Islam, was elected Member
of Parliament from Kishoreganj-1 constituency in a re-election as the
constituency fell vacant following the death of Syed Ashraf.

Ashraf, son of acting president of Bangladesh during the Liberation War
and one of the four national leaders Syed Nazrul Islam, was elected as MP
from the constituency for fifth consecutive term in December 30 polls.

But he died at a Bangkok hospital on Jan 3, on the day when other elected
MPs of 11th Jatiya Sangsad took oath.
