Can`t be formed EC by enacting a law in a pandemic: Law Minister

The Election Commission will be formed through a search committee, said Law Minister Anisul Huq today.

"I am not saying that we will not follow the law that is mentioned in the constitution to form the EC. But given the pandemic situation and the EC's term expiring next February, it is not possible to form an EC by enacting the law," he said today at a program at the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh.

"In her recent press conference, the prime minister made it clear that a new EC would be formed through a search committee. Previously, when the search committee was formed, the president took the opinions of all political parties.

"After everyone agreed, the search committee was made into a gazette. Although the gazette is not a law, since it was done with the consent of all and was decided by the president, it is close to the law. I'm still saying it's not the law; it's closer to the law," said the minister.
