Local Elections shall be Held before the Parliamentary Elections: Bangladesh Government’s Advisor


The LGRD and cooperatives adviser, Anwarul Iqbal, has said upazila election must take place before parliamentary polls even if the political parties oppose it.

The advisor said that despite the opposition by the political parties against holding upazila election before parliamentary polls the upazila election shall be held before the national elections. He said this a day after the Election Commission had declared schedules for some local-government bodies.

The Election Commission on Friday announced the schedule for elections to four city corporations and nine municipalities on August 4, amid protests by major political parties who are demanding that the stalled parliamentary elections be held first.

Anwarul Iqbal made the government plan emphatically clear while talking to journalists when he went to attend a publication ceremony of a policy paper on 'Role of Local Government in Early Childhood Care and Development' in the city.
He wondered why political parties did not want local elections before the parliamentary one.
