The schedule for the upcoming polls will not be affected by US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Lu’s letter to three major parties of Bangladesh—Awami League, BNP and Jatiya Party, Election Commission Secretary Md Jahangir Alam has said.

The secretary was speaking to reporters at a briefing on Tuesday when he talked about the letter calling for a free and fair election in Bangladesh.

Lu in his letter also urged "dialogue without preconditions" between the three political parties, according to media reports.

Jahangir said the commission did not know if the letter was about dialogue between political parties or not. “The commission has not received anything on the matter. It is proceeding at its own pace following its roadmap in accordance with constitutional obligations.”
