Jeddah: Social activist and an active member of the community, Mr Abdussalam Damda Abu has been elected as the new President of Bhatkal community Jeddah, whereas Habibullah Mohtesham has once again been elected to the post of General Secretary. The election of office-bearers was held on Friday, 25th October, at the residence of  Abdul Muiz Jukaku, in a meeting chaired by Mr Fazlurrahman Muniri.

The meeting began with the recitation of verses from Holy Quran by Naveed Hassan Ekkeri, after which the office bearers were elected. The officials were elected unanimously with the members' opinion.

Earlier, on 17th October, 25 members were elected for the new executive body. 

According to the Jamaat's bylaws, three members were elected ahead of the elections, in which the then-president of the outgoing administration Yaseen Askeri, General Secretary Habibullah Mohtesham and Abdul Muiz Jukaku were elected. The 18 members were to be elected through voting from a field of 24 members.  But 6 of those members withdrew their names, which led to the election proceedings without voting.
