EC gets 531 proposals in talks with political parties


PV Desk : The Election Commission has received a total of 531 proposals from 40 political parties in the dialogue on the next general elections.

The division among the parties over the election-time government is clear in their proposals.

The ruling Awami League and its allies are in favour of keeping Sheikh Hasina prime minister during the election as per the Constitution.

But, its rival the BNP and its partners have pushed for a non-partisan polls-time government.

The main opposition in Parliament, Jatiya Party, and two other parties have proposed a government with the parties that have representation in Parliament.
The Communist Party of Bangladesh or CPB is among 12 parties that want dissolution of the parliament before the election.

The Election Commission, however, does not have the authority to implement these proposals on the polls-time government.
