Decision on elections to 4 constituencies, Chattogram City Corporation on Monday

Decision will be taken in a meeting on Monday (tomorrow) regarding the elections to four constituencies as well as Chattogram City Corporation.

The meeting will be held at 4:00pm tomorrow while Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda will be in the chair.

The information was revealed in a letter signed by EC deputy secretary Md Shah Alam.   

There is compulsion to hold by-election in 90 days after any parliamentary seat remains vacant. But it was not possible to follow the regulation in terms of election to Bogura-1, Jashore-6 due to outbreak of coronavirus. It has also been mentioned in the constitution that there will be opportunity to hold by-election within next 90 days if there is any calamity. The Election Commission is now utilising that scope. Even though, the EC cannot hold election, then they will go to the President.

On the other hand, there is obligation to hold Chattogram City Corporation Election. But there is enough time to hold by-elections to Dhaka-5 and Pabna-4.
