Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader's wife Sherifa Quader took oath on Monday as MP (Member of Parliament) of the reserved parliamentary seats for women (women seat-45) in the Jatiya Sangsad.
Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury administered the oath at the oath-taking room of the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban.
Later, the Election Commission declared her elected recently.
The seat fell vacant following the death of Prof Masuda M Rashid Chowdhury, a lawmaker for reserved seats, on September 13.
According to the constitution, only lone candidates nominated by the party are elected unopposed in each reserved seat. As a result, it was only a matter of time for Sherifa to become an MP.
