We invited BNP for informal talks: CEC 

Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Habibul Awal has said that the commission invited BNP for informal discussions, not formal talks and the government has no conspiracy with EC's invitation to BNP. 

He said this during a press briefing at the Nirbachon Bhaban on Tuesday (Mar 28)

He also claimed that this is a strategy of Election Commission, not the government. 

The Election Commission has been rooting for free, impartial, participatory and virtually competitive elections from the beginning, he claimed. 

On March 25, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir termed the Election Commission's (EC’s) letter inviting BNP to talks as the latest strategy of the government. 

He also said their party’s standing committee will hold a meeting and take a decision on the EC’s letter.

“The EC sent us a letter as part of the latest strategy,” he said.

Earlier on March 23, the EC invited the BNP to a views-exchange meeting to discuss the next national election, among other issues.

Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Habibul Awal sent a demi-official letter to Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.
