Gono Forum’s another MP-elect Mokabbir Khan from Sylhet-2 constituency is set to be sworn in on Tuesday (today), following the footstep of party MP Sultan Mohammad Mansur.

In response to a letter sent by Mokabbir to Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury on Monday, an arrangement has been made to administrate oath to him at 12pm on Tuesday at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban, according to UNB report.

Gono forum central executive committee member Maj (retd) Afsary Ameen Ahmed carried the letter to parliament around 4:40pm yesterday.

In the letter sent in a letterhead of Gono Forum, the MP-elect said, “Me and my party has decided to take oath either on April 2 or 3.”

Mokabbir said he sent the letter as per the decision of their party’s presidium members. “The party leaders and its president Dr Kamal Hossain are aware of it.”

Replying to a question, he also said Dr Kamal gave him the green signal to take oath. “Besides, the people of my constituency also requested me to be sworn in.”

On March 7, Sultan Mohammad Mansur (Moulvibazar-2) took oath as a member of the 11th Parliament.

BNP along with Gono Forum and some other parties joined the December-30 election in alliance under the banner of Jatiya Oikyafront. BNP bagged six seats while Gono Forum two in the election.

The alliance turned down the election results bringing the allegation of 'massive vote robbery' and decided not to join parliament.

Gono Forum expelled Sultan Mansur hours after he had joined parliament.
