Awami League President, and Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the council

The two-day 21st national council of ruling Awami League is set to begin at the historic Suhrawardy Udyan in Dhaka at 3pm on Friday.

Awami League President, and Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the council, reports UNB.

The wave of anticipation over the council of the country’s oldest political party which is committed to introduce diversified and revitalized leadership at different ranks is comparatively higher this time.

According to party sources, the ruling party so far could hold the 50% councils of its district units. Till December 13, councils of 30 districts, including city and district levels, were held.

The party took the reconstitution move after some leaders of its associated bodies got involved in making money through unlawful and unethical means, including running casinos, came to the fore.

The party formed eight committees for eight divisions, comprising members from presidium members, Advisory Council and Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC), to lead the refurbishing of the party as well as recruiting fresh blood in leadership.

As per the announcement, the national council of Bangladesh Krishak League was held on November 6 while that of Awami Sramik League on November 9, Bangladesh Awami Swechchhasebak League on November 16, and that of Bangladesh AwamiJubo League was held on November 23.

Besides, the council of Awami Matsyajibi League was held on November 29 at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh.

It also completed the council of some important units - Dhaka South City and North City.

The assigned leaders made countrywide organizational tours to strengthen the party and resolve intra-party disputes ahead of the triennial national council.

Senior leaders who will get posts in the government will not be included in the vital posts of the party, said party sources. They also hinted that those are inactive in the field will not find their names in any post in the party.

On December 12, at an extended meeting of Awami League Dhaka North unit, party's general secretary Obaidul Quader expressed satisfaction that they have “almost” completed the council of the different units without any big clash despite being a ruling party, which increases competition for posts.

He said the revamped Awami League is now “stronger, smarter, and more organized. “It means that all welcomed our initiative to reconstruct the party from top to bottom,” he added.
