05 May 2016, Nirapad News: Necessary recommendation for bringing amendments in the constitution of the ruling Awami League to make it a modern and time-betting one to face the challenges of future would be suggested at the 20th national council of the country’s oldest party to be organised in the capital on July 10 and 11.
Disclosing this at a press conference at the political office of Awami League president Sheikh Hasina at Dhanmondi in the city today, Convener of the Constitution Sub-committee and agriculture and cooperatives affairs secretary of Awami League Dr Abdur Razzak said, “For bringing necessary amendments to our party constitution to make it a time-befitting one, we have collected constitutions of different democratic political parties of the world.”
He said that recommendations of the AL constitution sub-committee would be finalised within June 15 and the recommendation in this regard would be presented at the party national council after taking consent of Awami League president Sheikh Hasina.
Indicating that the number of posts in the Awami League Central Working Committee (ALCWC) might be increased, Dr Abdur Razzak, who chaired the meeting, said, “New divisions have been created in the country.
