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 .
