Chief Election Commissioner in Bangladesh ATM Shamsul Huda said that the Election Commission had followed the 'doctrine of necessity' in deciding to invite the Saifur-led faction to the talks on electoral reforms.
He claimed the EC has taken the right decision and now there's nothing to do about it. However, if any party feels aggrieved they can go to the courts of law. Meanwhile, the faction led by Khandaker Delwar Hossain, the secretary general appointed by Begum Khaleda Zia, strongly criticized the Election Commission’s decision.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has more on the story.
