Time for public education on Bangladesh's parliament

Now that the first session of the ninth parliament has begun in Bangladesh, it is a high time that a public education campaign is launched to aware people on functioning and modalities of the Jatiya Sangsad.

Of course, the Constitution of Bangladesh is the prime source for this public education. For a reader-friendly version on various parliamentary committees, the process of making laws and role of the MPs, role of the Speaker and the people's role in the law making process, you may download this Bangla material by TIB. It will help parliamentarians, journalists, students and others keen to find out about the working of Parliament.

The Rule of Procedures which governs the whole gamut of functioning of the Bangladesh Parliament is available here.

A one-stop site for all things about the Bangladesh Parliament is Bangladesh Parliament Legislative Centre, supported by UNDP.

For serious researchers, this book by Nizam Ahmed (2002) could provide an insightful guide that examines the 'new' parliament since the 1990s.
