Bangladesh: Elections in December

At last the date of election was declared ending uncertainties as to when the postponed general election of Bangladesh would be held. The Chief Adviser of Caretaker government Dr Fakhruddin Ahmed said a general election would be held on December 18. An Ordinary citizen has more.

The Upazilla polls would be held on December 24 and 28 not prior to the general elections asthe government wanted. This is in a way bowing to the demands of the political parties.

The political parties hailed the decision.

Now there should be no barriers to a free and fair elections but there is no certain course in politics.
