Bangladesh to hold presidential poll by Feb. 23: election commission
DHAKA — The presidential election of Bangladesh will be held by Feb. 23, the Election Commission (EC)’s secretary Md Jahangir Alam said here on Sunday.
He made the announcement at a news conference Sunday evening at his office, saying the incumbent president Abdul Hamid is not to be re-elected for another term, as the country’s constitution allows a maximum of two terms for a person in the post.
Hamid’s tenure will expire on April 24.
Alam said the schedule for the presidential election will soon be announced. (Xinhua)
