Newly-elected Member of Parliament (MP) from the Tangail-7 constituency Khan Ahmed Shuvo took the oath as Member of Parliament on Saturday, reports BSS.

Jatiya Sangsad (JS) Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury administered the oath to Khan Ahmed Shuvo elected in the by-poll with the ruling Awami League’s ticket.

Additional Secretary of Parliament Secretariat Tandra Shikder conducted the swearing-in ceremony, said a JS press release.

Chief Whip Noor-E-Alam Chowdhury was present at the function. After taking oath, Shuvo signed the oath book as part of the traditional ceremony for the lawmakers.

Ruling Awami League candidate Khan Ahmed Shuvo won the by-polls to Tangail-7 (Mirzapur) defeating Jatiya Party’s candidate Jahirul Islam Jahir on January 16.

The parliamentary seat fell vacant after the death of Awami League lawmaker Ekabbar Hossain on November 16 last year.
