EC approves draft of Political Party Registration Act

The Election Commission (EC) has approved the draft of Political Party Registration Act.

It was approved with some corrections and additional directions at a meeting with Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda in the chair, EC senior secretary M Alamgir told reporters.

The draft will be placed before the Election Commission's commissioners within a week with required corrections and then it would be sent to the concerned office of the government.

The EC underscores the need for a separate law for political party's registration as local government elections are now being held with party symbols, he added.

A total of 41 stakeholders including 17 political parties gave their opinion regarding the draft. Those opinions were also placed before the commission meeting, Alamgir further said.
