Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)- The biennial election of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) will be held on Sunday amid boycotting of one of the contesting panels – Forum.
The result of tomorrow’s one-sided election is pre-fixed, the Forum said in a press statement on Saturday, adding: “It’s only a vision of a vested quarter to implement its blue print.”
However, the election board is determined to hold the polls on time and the board does not see any uncertainty over holding the polls scheduled to begin on Sunday morning.
The BGMEA election was scheduled to be held on February 24 to elect its office bearers for 2011-12 but the board postponed its elections for undisclosed reasons.
A total of 3,259 voters are scheduled to elect 27 directors.
The elected directors will select one president and four vice-presidents to run the association for two years. Among the vice-presidents, one is elected from Chittagong region and others from Dhaka region.
