Bangladeshi Opposition Parties Say Voting List Flawed


Bangladeshi opposition parties are accusing the country's election commission of fabricating a list of voters to boost the ruling party's performance in next year's national elections.

The election committee released a list on Thursday of just over 91-million voters, a nearly 22-percent increase since the last election.

The main opposition Awami League says the list is unacceptable. The league heads a coalition of 14 opposition parties which have organized protests calling for electoral reforms.

The opposition alliance is demanding the government of Prime Minister Khaleda Zia enact reforms ahead of general elections in early 2007.

The alliance accuses the government of influencing members of the country's election commission, a charge the government denies.
