The Dhaka University authorities on Saturday appointed five returning officers to help the chief returning officer for the election to its central students’ union Ducsu.
The returning officers are – Prof Dr Md Didar-ul-Alam, chairman of soil, water and environment department; Prof Dr Amal Krishna Halder, chairmen of mathematics; Prof Dr Mahbuba Nasreen, director of Institute of Disaster Management and Vulnerability Studies; Prof Dr Abdul Bashir of Islamic history and culture; and Prof Dr Md Mustafizur Rahman, chairmen of computer science and engineering department.
DU Vice-Chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman appointed them to assist Chief Returning Officer Prof SM Mahfuzur Rahman, the university said in a press release.
Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) has remained dysfunctional for 28 years. The last DUCSU election was held in 1990.
Polls preparations began after the Appellate Division on January 6 vacated its previous order that stayed a High Court order asking DU authorities to take steps within the next six months to hold Ducsu election.
