Bangladesh EC: Army Will Not Be Deployed for Election Duties


Bangladesh Chief Election Commissioner ATM Shamsul Huda has expressed concerns about reports that criminals are returning to their areas following the announcement of the election schedule. He also said that the army would not be deployed for election duties.

The Election Commission has decided not to ask the government to deploy the army alongside police forces for duties of the August 4 city corporation and municipality elections. The joint forces will launch a combing operation ahead of the polls to recover illegal arms and arrest criminals and goons to prevent them from muscling in on the polls.

Amir Khasru has more on the story.
