Barrister Rumeen Farhana, BNP's lone MP-elect from a seat reserved for women in parliament, is going to be sworn-in Sunday.

Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury will administer her oath at 12pm at the parliament complex, the BNP chairperson's media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan told UNB on Saturday.

Rumeen, assistant international affairs secretary, submitted her nomination form to the Election Commission on May 20 as her party chose her as the lone candidate for election to the reserved seat.

On May 28, the Election Commission declared Rumeen, daughter of late Language Movement hero Oli Ahad, elected from the seat.

BNP got one reserved seat for women in proportionate to its five elected parliament members.

The 50 seats kept reserved for women are distributed among political parties as per their number of seats in parliament.
