>poll office doesn’t want to see emergency after March

>THE Election Commission (EC) has set end of March as the deadline for the caretaker government for lifting the restrictions on indoor politics countrywide so that political parties can resume their activities and get registered with the EC.
The EC also asked the government to decide by early next month whether the state of emergency would be lifted or relaxed to create the environment conducive to holding the long due polls to four city corporations and eight municipalities in April.
Following a meeting with Chief Adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed on Monday, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) ATM Shamsul Huda Tuesday disclosed the March-deadline to the media.
“We want the restrictions on indoor politics countrywide to go by the end of March. We also want a government decision on the state of emergency by early next month,” Huda told the media at the EC Secretariat conference room.
He said the chief adviser assured the EC of taking necessary steps in this regard soon.
Addressing the nation on January 12, Chief Adviser Fakhruddin Ahmed said his government was considering lifting the restrictions on indoor politics countrywide and gradually relaxing the state of emergency depending on the “needs and circumstance”.
