Khilafat wants women's qouta in parliament removed
Bangladesh Khilafat Andolan demanded the Election Commission (EC) remove the women’s quota in the parliament. In addition, they also asked for the removal of the provision that requires all political parties to have 33% female representation. The Islamic party made the demands when they met the EC for a dialogue Monday afternoon. In total, Khilafat presented 38 proposals. The meeting was presided over by Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda and attended by a 15-member delegation of Khilafat Andolan led by Maulana Shah Ataullah. The Islamic party’s other demands included holding the election under a caretaker government, deploying the army with magisterial powers during elections, the Ministry of Public Administration and Ministry of Home Affairs handed over to the Election Commission, decommissioning the Electronic Voting Machines, holding the elections with no active parliament, scrapping provisions for being elected without any competition, facilitate voting for expatriates, ease regulations for party registration, and stop imposing terms and conditions which may conflict with the Quran or Sunnah. Khilafat Andolan was the 20h political party to exchange dialogues with the EC regarding the next election. Earlier in the morning, Bangladesh Muslim league met with the EC.
