remarks on polls date

Muhith made a mistake: CEC

STAFF REPORTER

Brushing aside the remarks of Finance Minister AMA Muhith on the probable date of the parliamentary polls, chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda has said that the minister should not have told such things to media. “The minister made a mistake. We didn't have any discussion about the election date,” he said. The CEC said this in reply to a query at a press conference at a city hotel, on completion of the 9th Forum of the Election Management Bodies of South Asia (FEMBoSA) Conference, yesterday.

Muhith had said on Wednesday: “I have heard that the Election Commission (EC) plans to hold the polls on December 27.” But yesterday, the CEC rejected the statement of the finance minister. Earlier, EC secretary Helaluddin Ahmed said the commission is making preparations to hold the parliamentary polls in the last week

of December, as there is constitutional compulsion to hold the polls between October 30 and January 28. The tenure of the current government would end on January 28 next year, as the first session of the 10th Parliament began on 29 January 2014. Accordingly, the EC will have to announce the election schedule before 90 days of that session. It means the scheduled date is likely to be at the end of October or beginning of November and the commission will have to hold the 11th parliamentary polls by Jan 28, 2019.
