Election Commission has drafted 8 conditions for the political parties to be registered with it otherwise the  party will not be allowed to compete the election. The  conditions are-1) that the constitution of the party should declare clearly that the party will run democratically 2) all the committees of the party at all levels will be elected by direct votes after every three years 3) 33% of the seats will be allocated for women at all level of the committees including central committee 4) No student front in the academic institutions 5) no teachers front in academic institutions 6) No labour front in the industries or business organisations 7) rules for controlling discipline in the party 8) the party must obtain atleast one seat in the last elections or 2% of the total votes cast in any national elections and  maintain office in half of the districts or upazillas and obtain 1000 votes in a district or 200 votes in a upazilla and has central committee and central office

The potitical parties expressed their mixed reactions to the declaration. Some of them appreacited the ideas and some oppose one or more conditions.  

They all expressed that the Election Commission  should discuss the terms and conditions with the political parties as it is ultimately the political parties for whom the rules are to be prepared.

There is no doubt that EC should discuss the terms and conditions with the political parties but it shouldn’t be dictated by the parties for whom the rules are to be prepared.
