Bangladesh Election Commission on Wednesday (Aug 26) approved the draft of Political Party Registration Act. The EC approved the draft of Political Party Registration Act with some corrections and directions at a meeting held today with Chief Election Commissioner K M Nurul Huda in the chair, Election Commission senior secretary M Alamgir told reporters.
He said that the draft would be placed before the EC commissioners within a week with required corrections and then it would be sent to the concerned office of the government.
He said the EC underscores the need of a separate law for political party’s registration as local government elections also are now being held with party symbols while RPO is applicable only for national election.
A total of 41 stakeholders including 17 political parties gave opinions regarding the draft, those opinions were also placed before the commission meeting, said Alamgir.
