BNF may get another timeframe to fulfil registration condition

  • Published at 07:16 pm September 15th, 2013

The Election Commission is going to give another seven days to the aspiring new political party Bangladesh Nationalist Front for fulfilling its conditions to get registration.

Earlier, Bangladesh Nationalist Front (BNF) failed twice to meet the EC conditions of political party registration.

Meanwhile, the EC officials are divided in their opinion over giving another timeframe to the would-be political party.

Election Commissioners Mohammad Abu Hafiz and Md Shah Newaz are opposed to the timeline while the Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Rakibuddin Ahmad, election commissioners Abdul Mobarak and Zabel Ali are in favour of giving BNF another chance.

BNP has already approached the commission thrice, urging it not to consider BNF to be a political party.

The main opposition alleged that BNF was using BNP’s logo, the portrait of its late founder Ziaur Rahman, and his 19-point charter to “gain political leverage”. On August 4, BNF applied for a couple of weeks to fulfil the EC conditions and the commission granted its application.

According to the political party registration laws, to gain EC registration, a party must have committees in at least 22 districts and 100 upazilas and at least 200 members on each of these committees.
