Dhaka,09,November,2018

 

Dhaka: The general elections will be held on December 23 in Bangladesh. The Election Commission announced the date of parliamentary elections on Thursday between the government and the main opposition coalition, between the ongoing deadlock over the dates of elections. Chief election commissioner Noor-ul-Huda said in an address broadcast on TV, "The date of election is December 23."

 

 

 

 

Huda had held a meeting with four Election Commissioners to finalize the election date, after which Huda announced the date of voting. The newly created National Unity Front (NUF) is demanding to avoid the date of election, while the ruling Awami League had requested the commission to maintain its plan.

 

 

 

 

The Commission had earlier said that it is constitutionally bound to hold elections till January 28. Opposition parties have expressed the hope that the election will not be democratic and threatens the demonstrations. Huda has asked all political parties to take part in the elections so that the development efforts of Bangladesh can be continued and strengthen democracy.
