Election Commissioner Kabita Khanom on Wednesday termed his colleague Mahbub Talukder’s proposal to bring the government executive wing and a ministry under the Election Commission ahead of the general polls unconstitutional and illogical.

Mahbub Talukder, who is allegedly serving the purpose of BNP, came out of a meeting of the commission on Monday and gave a note of dissent.

He however placed some written proposals to bring the executive organ and ministries under the commission during the polls time.

Replying to a query of journalists at the commission office, Kabita said the executive organ of the government is vested in the Prime Minister by the Constitution.

Mahbub Talukder advocated for bringing various ministries, especially public administration and home affairs, under the commission ahead and during the general polls.

She also said that there was no need to hold dialogue with the government and the EC has not enough time to hold meeting again with political parties.
