Iajuddin to continue as president

Says Mainul

Law Adviser Mainul Hosein yesterday said though the tenure of President Iajuddin Ahmed ends on September 5, he will stay until the election of his successor.
The adviser made the remark when reporters approached him for a government view about the unprecedented situation.
"As per the constitution, Iajuddin's tenure as president ends on September 5. The constitution also says that he will have to continue until the election of his successor," said Mainul.
Citing speculations that Iajuddin would be replaced, the adviser categorically said the present caretaker government would never violate the constitution.
"It is the politicians who have violated the constitution. But the caretaker government will do its work as per the constitution," said Mainul.
