The delegation would discuss with high government officials on the upcoming elections. They will start their official mission on Sunday.
The delegates are - David Noel Ward (Election Expert), Alexandre Mattus (Electoral Analyst), Swibes Charlotte (Electoral Analyst), and Rebecca Cox (Legal Expert).
Earlier, EU communicated to Bangladesh that they were not sending a full-fledged election observation mission. On September 20, in a letter, the alliance of 27 countries of Europe, announced the decision to the Election Commission.
On the other hand, the EU will hold a joint meeting with the Election Commission (EC) this afternoon on the issue of sending observers in the upcoming national elections. A representative of 10 members of the organization is expected to attend the meeting.
