Due to internal conflicts, the Democratic Party, one of the 14 parties led by Awami League, has lost its registration. The Election Commission (EC) has issued a notice to the Democratic Party to know why the party’s registration should not be cancelled.

The party has been asked to respond to the notice within the next 15 days.

The Democratic Party is one of the 14 parties. The election symbol of the party is the pigeon. The party nominated 12 people to participate in this election. The leaders of the party were also meeting with Awami League about seat sharing.

But due to conflict in the executive committee, the EC decided to cancel the nomination papers of all the candidates of the party. This decision was announced in a letter signed by Deputy Secretary of the Commission Md. Mahbub Alam Shah on Tuesday.

The letter given to the returning officers said, ‘In view of the relevant matters, it is being informed that the committee submitted separately by the president and general secretary of the political party, the Democratic Party, registered with the Election Commission, has been disapproved by the honorable commission. So the Democratic Party is an affiliate of the reputed political party
No committee exists.’

It has also been said that, in such a situation, it is requested to take the necessary steps to cancel the candidature filed by any office-bearer of the Democratic Party on the occasion of the 12th National Assembly elections.

Among the 44 political parties registered in the Election Commission, the candidates of 29 parties, including Awami League and Jatiya Party, are coming to the polls. On the other hand, 15 political parties including BNP have no candidates in this election. If the candidates of the Democratic Party do not come to the polls, the number of parties that will be out of the election will be 16.

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal announced the schedule of the 12th National Assembly elections on November 15. According to the schedule, the vote will be held on January 7. Last date for withdrawal of candidature is 17th December, and allotment of symbols will be on 18th December. Election campaign will start from December 18. It will continue until 8 am on January 5.
