EU decides to send observers to monitor 12th national polls

The European Union (EU) has decided to send four observers to monitor the 12th national polls of Bangladesh, scheduled for January next year.

The EU on Thursday sent a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Habibul Awal.

They have also communicated their decision with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

Officials at the Election Commission said the EU observers are likely to reach Bangladesh on November 21. They would stay in Bangladesh for two months. 

Earlier, the EU wrote to the Election Commission saying it would not observe the Bangladesh general election due to fund constraints, following a pre-election observation mission's report.
