Bangladesh Chief Election Commissioner Dr ATM Shamsul Huda reassured the public of holding the next general elections as per the roadmap ending in December 2008.
"Come what may, the elections will be held within the time frame given in the roadmap," he said at the dialogue with Awami League leaders at Election Commission. The dialogue was organized as part of the commission's ongoing program to hold second round of dialogue on electoral law reforms. Dr Huda said there was no alternative to holding elections on time and present set up of the commission does not want to be a 'national betrayer' in the eyes of people of the country.
Matiur Rahman Chowdhury has the details.
