Election commissioner Md Anisur Rahman said the schedule of the next general election would be announced in November and the election will take place in the first week of January in 2024.
The EC hopes the election will be participated by every party, the commissioner said at Kishoreganj circuit house today.
“Participation of all parties doesn’t hinge on us. It depends on the decision of parties and their political decisions. But we would create an environment conducive to election. We’ve spent one and half years in office. We’ve called every party several times since we assumed office. We are still urging them all to participate in the election and hope that the election would be participatory, free and fair,” Anisur said.
We invited the BNP several times and our door is still open. We would welcome it if the party wants to come. We hope these issues will be resolved as we want a participatory election joined by all.Anisur Rahman, election commissioner
