Dhaka, March 23: Election Commissioner Begum Rasheda Sultana said that if there are irregularities, the national election will be cancelled like the Gaibandha by-election.
Dhaka, March 21: The Election Commission (EC) has decided to conduct polls in EVMs in 70 to 80 seats in the upcoming parliamentary elections. But this requires the repair of a large number of EVM machines that have become useless. But it requires a huge amount of money. They have not been able to fund this yet. If the government does not release the necessary funds within the next few days, the Election Commission will have to drop the agenda for taking votes in EVMs.
Bangladesh’ next general election is most likely to be held in the first week of January 2024 and indications are that the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its ally, the Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI), which has lost the support and sympathy of the people, will try to undermine the validity of the election process by violent protests and attacks on ordinary Bangladeshis, especially targeting minorities.
