When is the election?
Election Commission has revised polls schedule, deferring the 11th general election by a week to December 30.
The authorities have fixed November 28 as the deadline for filing nomination papers, Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda made the announcement at a programme in Dhaka’s Bangabandhu International Conference Centre this afternoon.
According to the fresh schedule, the nomination papers will be scrutinised on December 2. The last date for withdrawal of nomination is December 9. A gazette notification was published yesterday afternoon to make the decision effective immediately.
The change comes four days after the Election Commission announced the polls schedule of the 11th parliamentary elections and several opposition parties demanding a delay.
