EC lags behind own roadmap

The election commission has deviated from the roadmap it announced in order to hold the 11th parliamentary polls in a successful manner.The commission had begun working on three major tasks but failed to complete them within its own deadline of December 2017, a review of its pledges suggests.The commission, led by chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda, announced the roadmap on 16 July.It fixed a target of implementing seven tasks to hold the national elections before 28 January 2019, the date of expiry of the current Jatiya Sangsad (national assembly).The commission held dialogue with staholders and took their recommendations for simplifying and updating the election process but it could not publish the recommendations by December despite pledges to do so.The commission was to redemarcate 300 parliamentary constituencies by the yearend but it could not act as it failed to reform electoral law.It was supposed to complete the review of the commission's legal framework by December.
