BNP-Jamaat asks Bangladesh Election Commission to Delay Registration


Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and Jamaat-e- Islami Bangladesh yesterday requested the Election Commission (EC) to extend the deadline for party registration by a week. The deadline for registration expires on October 15.

The leaders of the two parties yesterday conveyed their requests to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Dr ATM Shamsul Huda at the EC separately through letters.

Both the leaders of BNP and Jamaat said as they were going to hold pre-election dialogue with the government on October 14, so they need at least one week time for registration.

A BNP delegation led by Nazrul Islam Khan, Joint Secretary Geneal, Rezvi Ahmed, Office Secretary, Nurul Kabir Shahin and Zainal Abedin handed over the party letter to the CEC .


After meeting with the CEC Nazrul Islam Khan told the media that BNP and Jamaat are scheduled to sit in dialogue with the caretaker government on October 14 for discussing some important issues including the revised Representation of People Order (RPO) and the party-registration rules. So it would be hard for them to apply by October 15, he added. "We've requested the EC to extend the time by a week for registration," he said. The Joint Secretary General of BNP said, a provision of RPO about the front organisation is not rational.
