Abdul Hamid Elected as Bangladesh’s New President

(Dhaka) – The speaker of Bangladesh’s parliament Abdul Hamid was elected unopposed as president, a potentially crucial role as the restive country heads for elections next year, officials said. Hamid is a 69-year-old stalwart of the ruling Awami League party who has been serving as acting president of the nation after the death of his predecessor Zillur Rahman on March 20, 2013.
“Abdul Hamid has won the election uncontested. The chief election commissioner declared him as the winner today,” said S.M. Asaduzzman, a director of the Election Commission.
