Published on: 9:24 pm - Saturday | July 4, 2020


The Election Commission on Saturday decided to hold the by-polls to Jashore-6 and Bogura-1 parliamentary constituencies on July 14.

The EC took the decision at a meeting held at Nirbachon Bhaban in the capital as there was a constitutional obligation of holding the polls by this time, EC secretary M Alamgir told journalists.

He said that all the election-related activates, including campaigning and polling, would take place maintaining a social distance to prevent a possible spread of COVID-19.

On March 21, the EC postponed the elections of the constituencies along with Chittagong City Corporation polls considering the coronavirus pandemic.
