The European Union (EU) Ambassador to Bangladesh Charles Whitely held a meeting with Bangladesh Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal in Dhaka on Tuesday.
Writing on Twitter after the meeting, the EU Ambassador said that he held an in-depth discussion with CEC Kazi Habibul Awal about the upcoming parliamentary polls and the deployment of an European Union Election Observation Mission.
Earlier, on April 17, Charles Whiteley had met Foreign Minister Dr. A K Abdul Momen and discussed the proposed deployment of an EU Election Observation Mission in Bangladesh.
In January also, an EU delegation had an exchange of views with CEC on the election observers and preparations for the parliamentary elections scheduled to be held by the end of the year or early January next year.
The meeting comes in the wake of a series of meetings between the Bangladesh government and American and European countries regarding the next general elections in Bangladesh and deployment of the Election Observers in particular.
The US Ambassador to Bangladesh Peter Haas had a meeting with the leaders of the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on 16th April where the general elections of Bangladesh came up for discussion.
