Amidst confusions due to a writ petition to be heard on Monday and confrontations with police , the Election Commission in Bangladesh goes ahead with enlisting the names of new voters.
Over two hundred thousand enumerators started collecting information about the prospective voters across the country on Sunday while in the capital at least 25 people were injured in a clash between police and the activists of AL's youth front trying to lay siege to the Election Commission (EC) secretariat. The main opposition party in Bangladesh Awami League says that they will not accept the new voter list. As part of the countrywide agitation, the AL leaders at a rally in the city declared that they will not accept the voter list, the task of which was undertaken unilaterally by the chief election commissioner (CEC). The opposition leaders demanded the commission immediately stop the activities.
