Election of President on time: Law Minister

Law Minister Anisul Haque said that the President will be elected at the appointed time. And the government has no plans to amend the constitution. After inaugurating a workshop for subordinate court judges at the judicial administration training institute in the capital on Wednesday, the minister gave this information in response to questions from journalists. The current president. Abdul Hamid was first sworn in as the country’s 20th president on April 24, 2013. He was elected as the 21st President unopposed on February 7, 2018, after completing a five-year term. According to the Constitution, there is no possibility of a third term for the President. So, there is a discussion about who will be the new president. There was also a discussion on whether Abdul Hamid would become the president again after amending the constitution. When asked about that today, the law minister said, “So far, the government has no plan to amend the constitution.” The President will be elected at the appointed time. Since he has served two terms, he cannot stay longer as per the constitution. So, a new one will be elected. BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir and the party’s standing committee member Mirza Abbas are now in jail. Both of them were granted bail yesterday. Regarding the bail of these two leaders, the minister said, “Not even the law ministry, nor any ministry is interfering in the work of the court. If the court thinks so, it will grant bail. If the court thinks it can’t be given, don’t give it.’ Regarding the bail of BNP leaders, the law minister said, ‘It often happens that the lower court did not grant bail, the higher court granted bail. Again, the lower court granted bail, the higher court blocked it. This is nothing new in Bangladesh. Those who have raised questions about it, may not have seen Jatiya Party-BNP’s activities, or even if they have, they don’t want to say so.
