Law on formation of Election Commission soon: Anisul Huq

Law Minister Anisul Huq has told the parliament that the government will enact a law on formation of the Election Commission soon.

Both the Judiciary Appointment Act and the Election Commission Act are being drafted. Two bills will be placed in the next two sessions. However, the next Election Commission will not be formed under this law.

The minister said this while participating in the discussion on Bangladesh Supreme Court Judges (Remuneration and Privileges) Bill, 2021 on Sunday.

Earlier, BNP MP Harunur Rashid and Jatiya Party's Mujibul Haque Chunnu and several other MPs, who took part in the discussion on the bill, strongly demanded of the government to enact a law for formation of the Election Commission in line with the Constitution.
