Thousands of 14 party alliance supporters marched in the Bangladesh capital of Dhaka on Tuesday to reinforce their demands for sweeping reforms ahead of January elections.
Riot police kept the activists away from the election commission building, but opposition Awami League officials say their supporters will demonstrate every day until officials agree to reforms.
Alliance leader Sheikh Hasina suspended a transport blockade Monday after the interim government ordered the election commission to clean up the voters' list and review the schedule for elections currently set for January 21st.
U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs John Gastright told reporters in Dhaka today that the Election Commission has begun a seven-day plan to correct the voter list.
The demand of the opposition alliance to remove the election commissioner has already been met.
Clashes during the most recent two days of the transport blockade have killed four people and injured scores of others.
The alliance has alleged that the voter list contains names of people who are either dead or do not exist, which it says can be used in favor of the outgoing government.
The U.S.-based National Democratic Institute's Dhaka office said Saturday that more than 10 million names on the current voter list are either errors or duplicates.
