The Election Commission (EC) today published a gazette notification detailing the names and addresses of the elected members of parliament (MPs) in the 50 reserved seats for women in the 12th Jatiya Sangsad. 
 
Among the 50 MPs, 48 are from Awami League and its allies, and two are from Jatiya Party, according to the notification. 
 
All the 50 women MPs were elected to their seats uncontested. There was no any need for voting as only 50 candidates submitted nominations and no one withdrew their candidacy.
  
As per the existing law, the parliamentary seats reserved for women are distributed to the parties in proportion to the seats they have won in the general elections. 
 
The gazette notification will be sent to the Jatiya Sangsad Secretariat and later the secretariat will arrange the oath taking ceremony for the MPs.
