Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda on Tuesday said that there is no scope to defer the announcement of polls schedule. However, the upcoming general election can be delayed if all political parties want, he added. 

The CEC said this at a programme at Agargaon in the capital this morning.

On Monday, major opposition alliance Jatiya Oikyafront has urged the Commission to announce the schedule for the next general election after the outcome of its Wednesday’s dialogue with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. 

Earlier, the Election Commission on Sunday said it would announce the schedule for the next parliamentary election on November 8. The decision came at a meeting of the Commission with the CEC in the chair.
