Chief Adviser of the Caretaker Government in Bangladesh declared the date of the parlimentary election in a televised address to be held on 18th December 2008. He at the same time declared the upazilla election dates to be held on 24th and 28th December 2008. The declaration was made as proposed by the Election Commission.
With the declaration of the date, CA has advanced along the roadmap to fulfil their committment to hold a general election by December 2008.
People has speculation about the upazilla election as how the EC accomodate their stand to hold the upazilla in the face of continued opposition of the political parties not to hold upazilla election before the general election. Initially EC had the intention to hold the Upazilla election in October but now they have shifted the date to honour the intention of the major poltical parties not to hold upazilla election before the general election. Major political parties urged earlier to hold the upazilla election along with or after the general election.
CA in his speech expressed the hope that all will cooperate to hold a free and fair election and through this elections Bangladesh will able to emerge on stronger democratic base.
