Court Correspondent:

The Appellate Division’s Chamber Judge Court on Wednesday temporarily suspended the High Court’s judgment regarding the declaration of the UNOs’ role as the Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of Upazila Parishads illegal and unconstitutional.
The suspension will remain valid till June 5 this year, according to the decision.
Chamber Justice M Enayetur Rahim made the decision following a government appeal.
Additional Attorney General Mehedi Hasan Chowdhury confirmed the information.
On March 29 this year, the High Court declared the section 33 of Upazila Parishad Act that allows Upazila Nirbahi Officers (UNOs) to perform duty as Chief Executive Officers in upazila parishads ille-gal and contradictory to Articles 59 and 60 of the constitution.
The High Court bench of Justice Farah Mahbub and Justice Ahmed Sohel had pronounced the judgment after hearing two writ petitions.
President of Upazila Parishad Association and Dumki upazila chairman Harun-or-Rashid, its general secretary Upazila Chairman Saiful Islam Khan Biru, Upazila Chairman Rina Parveen, Vice chairman Selim Ahmed and Vice Chairman Rasheda Akter filed a writ petition challenging the UNOs’ role.
Advocate Minhaduzzaman Liton also filed a writ petition in this regard.
In 2011, the High Court issued a rule asking the government to explain as to why the section 33 of Upazila Parishad Act should not be declared illegal and contradictory to the Articles 7, 59 and 60 of the constitution.
Fifteen secretaries including the secretaries to the Cabinet Division and Local Government, Rural Devel-opment and Cooperatives Ministry were made respondents to the rule.
