In the wake of allegations of irregularities, the Election Commission (EC) has postponed the by-election results and gazette publication of two parliamentary constituencies—Lakshmipur-3 and Brahmanbaria-2.
EC’s new spokesperson and Secretary Jahangir Alam revealed the information at a press conference at the Election Commission office at Agargaon in the capital on Tuesday (November 7) afternoon.
Jahangir Alam said the EC is now analyzing the allegations of vote rigging and irregularities in the by-elections.
“Directives have been given to the deputy commissioners (DCs), superintendents of police (SPs) and returning officers (ROs) of the districts concerned to verify the allegations,” he said.
“Decisions on voting results of the two constituencies will be taken based on the investigation reports,” the EC secretary added.
