Jamaat wants to participate in EC reforms dialogue
“Jamaat is a registered political party. The case over Jamaat’s registration is now pending with the Appellate Division of Supreme Court. The party has the right to participate in the discussion as a party representing public,” Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Maqbul Ahmad said in a letter sent to president on Monday. Jamaat disclosed the matter to media through a press release signed by its Central Press Secretary Md Taslim Alam. It is very important to form an impartial EC to hold a free, fair and neutral election participated by all political parties, the release said. Jamaat appreciated the move initiated by the president to hold talks with the country’s major political parties to form a search committee for the next EC, and hoped that the discussion would be a success. Expressing hope that the president would take initiatives to allow Jamaat in the dialogue for the sake of proper representation of people, the Jamaat release said: “As a major democratic political party of the country, the opportunity for Jamaat's participation in the talks is required to make the dialogue on EC reforms meaningful and successful.” A total of seven top leaders of Jamaat were convicted over charges of crimes against humanity committed during the Liberation War. Five of them were hanged. President Abdul Hamid is currently holding talks with the country’s registered political parties to discuss formation of the next EC. The EC is stipulated to be reconstituted by February of the next year, as the tenures of incumbent commissioners including the chief election commissioner (CEC) will expire halfway through that month.
