Speaker leaves Dhaka today

  • Published at 08:40 pm October 2nd, 2014

Speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury is set to leave Dhaka today for Cameroon to face the general assembly of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association that would either elect or reject her as the president of its executive committee.

If the general assembly of the 60th conference elects Shirin Sharmin on October 9, she would be the first Bangladeshi to hold the prestigious association of the former colonies of the United Kingdom.

It is considered as a prestigious platform dedicated to promoting democracy and development.

Major decision-makers in the elections --Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Asian nations-- have already extended support to Bangladesh candidate.

The inaugural session of the 10-day conference starts today  with a steering committee meeting followed by workshops on democracy, governance, development and other relevant issues.

As per the CPA charter, the general assembly will elect  new president for a three-year term by votes. The delegates of the member states must be present at the general assembly to exercise their voting right.

“Hopefully, the member states would elect me as president. I would try my best to serve the CPA if elected,” Shirin Sharmin told the Dhaka Tribune.
