Third Round of Political Dialogue with EC Begins in Dhaka


The third round of dialogue between the Election Commission (EC) and political parties kicked off yesterday with the demands for holding of the stalled general elections before the upazila polls and declaring a specific date for the parliamentary elections.

The parties also demanded for relaxing the conditions for party registration with extension of the timeframe and withhold the delimitation of parliamentary constituencies before the general polls.


On the first day, a total of four political parties took part in the dialogue separately. The parties are-Jatiya Party (Ershad), Worker Party of Bangladesh, Ganotantrik Party and Bangladesh Samyabadi Dal (ML).

The Commission piloted the third round of dialogue aiming at smoothing the differences brewing over the schedule of upazila and national polls and registration of political parties in accordance with new electoral laws.

The EC side comprised Chief Election Commission Dr ATM Shamsul Huda, Election Commissioners-Muhammad Sohul Hossain and Brig Gen (Retd) M Sakhawat Hossain and EC secretary Muhammad Humayun Kabir.

During the dialogue, Jatiya Party, which earlier demanded for upazila polls first, did a U-turn saying that they have no objection if the parliamentary elections are held before the upazila polls.
