The Election Commission (EC) will hold an electoral dialogue with journalists and media personalities on August 16 and 17 as a part of its election roadmap.
“Talks with journalists from online and television channels will be held on August 16 while with print journalists and media personalities on August 17,” EC Secretary Muhammad Helal Uddin Ahmed told The Daily Star today.
The dialogue is likely to begin at 11:00am at the EC Secretariat in Dhaka, he added.
The EC earlier had invited 59 civil society members to join the talks in which 35 participated while some others expressed their inability to attend for personal reasons.
In the talks, most civil society members spoke for restoring “no vote” system and ensuring a level-playing field for all political parties to hold the next election in a free, fair and participatory manner.
