Presidential election on February 18
The election to choose the next president of Bangladesh will be held on February 18, Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda announced yesterday. According to the schedule, nominations to succeed President Abdul Hamid must be submitted by February 5 before the papers are scrutinized on February 7. The final date for withdrawing a candidacy is February 10. “Anyone can participate in the presidential election but he or she has to be endorsed by a member of parliament,” the chief election commissioner said following a meeting at the Election Commission office. “The MPs are the voters in the presidential election.” KM Nurul Huda said no voting will be needed and the commission can declare a single candidate for president if there is no rival name standing in the election.

According to Article 123 of the constitution, presidential elections should be held between 90 and 60 days before the current term of the president expires. Since the constitution also stipulates that the president has to be elected by the members of parliament, voting had to be timetabled for before the current 19th session of parliament ends on February 28.
