DHAKA, August 26, 2020 (BSS)-The Election Commission (EC) today 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 KM Nurul Huda in the chair, EC senior secretary M Alamgir told reporters here.
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.
