The Election Commission (EC) has said according to its draft list, the number of new voters has increased by 2,086,161.

EC Additional Secretary Ashok Kumar Debnath shared the figure at the commission's media centre in Dhaka on Sunday.

He said the final voter list will be published on March 2.

According to commission data, the total number of voters in the country was 119,689,289 till September 14 last year, before the 12th national election.

Later, 2,086,161 new voters went to the centre. Among them 1,320,396 were male, 765,069 female voters and 75 transgenders.

The total number of voters has increased to 121,775,450 with new inclusions till January 1.

However, the commission said there may be doubts about the number of female voters as the female voters did not go to their nearest police station to become enlisted.

In addition, the actual voter number and number of deceased voters will be included in the final list after collecting data based on the door-to-door survey.
