Political parties asked to file reports with EC by July 31
The Election Commission yesterday sent letters to all the 40 political parties asking them to submit audit reports of their annual income and expenditure by July 31.
“We have sent the letters to remind the political parties,” Rowshan Ara, senior assistant secretary to the EC Secretariat, told The Daily Star.
However, such letter will not be sent to Jamaat because the High Court on August 1 last year declared its registration illegal. An appeal against verdict remains pending at the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court.
According to the Representation People Order (RPO), all the registered parties have to submit its annual audit reports certified by a registered chartered accountant firm. The registration will be cancel, if any party fails to submit the report for three consecutive years.
