A special swearing-in ceremony for Jatiya Party’s (JaPa) ailing Chairman HM Ershad for the 11th parliament is scheduled to be organized next week. 

Ershad’s oath taking ceremony was expected to be carried out at 3pm on Thursday at the Jatiya Sangsad as he could not attend the main swearing in ceremony with the newly elected MPs of his party at 12pm due to his illness, which was confirmed by his APS Manzurul Islam.

But party Co-chairman Gulam Muhammad Quader, after a parliamentary party meeting held in the House, said Ershad would not be taking oath on Thursday as he was unwell.

He said: “Our party chairman has decided to take oath within three to four days, if not, he will take oath during the extended time but within the stipulated period.”

According to the constitution, a MP has to take oath within three days of the official gazette publication of the election result.

According to the constitution’s Article 148 (2A), the newly elected MPs are obligated to take the oath within three days of election results being published in an official gazette; otherwise their memberships will be cancelled. 

Earlier in the day, other 21 JaPa MPs, including the party's Senior Co-Chairman Raushan Ershad and Secretary General Mashiur Rahman Ranga, had attended the swearing in ceremony in parliament.

Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chowdhury had administered the oath.
