BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir remains the only elected BNP leader yet to join parliament

Three days after Jahidur Rahman became the first BNP lawmaker in the 11th National Parliament, four more MPs-elect from the party were sworn into office on Monday.

Harun ur Rashid from Chapainawabganj-3, Aminul Islam from Chapainawabganj-2, Ukil Abdus Sattar from Brahmanbaria-2 and Mosharraf Hossain from Bogra-4 were sworn in by Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury on Monday afternoon at her office.

The Bangla Tribune reports Harun said the MPs were taking oaths as instructed by Tarique Rahman, acting BNP chairperson.

BNP won only six seats in the latest national polls. With five MPs now sworn in, Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir remains the only elected BNP leader yet to join parliament.

Mirza Fakhrul was elected from Bogra-6.

BNP took part in the polls under the Jatiya Oikya Front alliance, which won a total of eight seats – BNP winning six, and Gano Forum bagging two. After the results, the Oikya Front refused to acknowledge the parliament and demanded fresh polls, citing irregularities and massive vote rigging.

However, both Gano Forum MPs Sultan Mansur and Mokobbir Khan took the oath subsequently despite the party’s hardline stance.
