  • VOA News

The Awami League presidium at a meeting on Tuesday decided to contest the forthcoming parliamentary elections abiding by some of the strict rules of the prevailing state of emergency in a redefined form.

'The issue of the state of emergency will not create problems for the elections if the government only rename the Emergency Powers Rules', AL's acting general secretary Syed Ashraful Islam said after the three-hour long presidium meeting.

He suggested that the government should convert the rules in the current emergency law into general rules adding that some sections of the emergency rules could be used for holding free and fair elections.
