Parliamentary elections in Bangladesh to be held on Dec 23: Poll body

By Mir Afroz Zaman
Dhaka, Nov 8 ( UNI) Parliamentary elections in Bangladesh would be held on December 23 this year, Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda announced on Thursday.
In a televised address, this evening, he said that November 19 will be the last date for filing of nominations.
Scrutiny of nominations will take place on November 22 and the last date for withdrawal of nominations is November 29, giving the candidates a 10-day window to consider their decision.
Earlier in the day, Huda met his colleagues to finalise the poll schedule at the Election Commission in Agargaon.
Huda’s speech came amid the new opposition alliance Jatiya Oikya Front’s repeated calls for the commission to defer the election schedule.
The ruling Awami League, on the other hand, urged the EC to stick to its plan.
The EC says it is a constitutional binding to hold the election by January 28.
Huda urged all political parties to take part in the election to continue Bangladesh’s development efforts and put democracy on a stronger footing.
