Nurul Haque Nur, the quota reform movement leader who upset Bangladesh Chhatra League candidate to win the Dhaka University Central Students' Union (DUCSU) vice-president post, says he will take office.
“We’re prioritising the students’ demands,” he told a press conference at Madhur Canteen on the university campus on Friday afternoon.
Akhter Hossen, who won the social service affairs secretary post from Nur’s panel, will also join the students’ body.
“We’ll officially take responsibilities as Ducsu representatives and work together with the general students for solving various problems faced by them,” the Ducsu VP-elect said.
The Ducsu polls, the first in 28 years, were marred by allegations of irregularities. All panels, except that of Chhatra League, boycotted the election. The ruling party student front dominated the polls but lost the posts of VP and social service affairs secretary.
