CEC: Election schedule not before last week of October

  • Election must be held within 90 days before term of current parliament expires
  • Countdown to 12th national election will start on November 1
Update : 30 Jul 2023, 07:03 PM

Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Habibul Awal has said the schedule for the 12th general election will not be announced before the last week of October.

The CEC was speaking to reporters at the Election Commission Secretariat on Sunday afternoon.

According to the constitution, the next election must be held within 90 days before the five-year term of the current parliament expires, meaning the countdown to the 12th national election will start on November 1.

The maiden session of the 11th national parliament was held on January 23, 2019. “So we have a constitutional obligation to conduct the 12th national polls between November 2023 and January 29, 2024,” Election Commissioner Md Alamgir said last year.
