Kallyan Party boycotts talks with EC

Bangladesh Kallyan Party has boycotted the ongoing Election Commission (EC) dialogue ahead of the upcoming 12th general polls.

The party was scheduled to sit with Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal and other commissioners in Dhaka at 10:30am on Tuesday. But no one of the party attended the dialogue.

Bangladesh Kallyan Party Chairman Maj Gen (retd) Syed Muhammad Ibrahim (Bir Protik), said, “We will not join the EC talks. We have expressed our inability to be a part of this”.

Kallyan Party is one of the components of the BNP-led 20-party alliance.

Earlier on Sunday, the first day of the dialogue, Bangladesh Muslim League, another component of the BNP-led 20-party alliance, opted out of EC's call for talks.
