Small teams of members of the armed forces will work in every district

Members of the armed forces will work with the police, after December 15, to maintain law and order— ahead of the upcoming 11th general election, Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda has said.

“Small teams of the armed forces will work in coordination with the police,” he told a special meeting on law and order on Thursday in Dhaka.

There will be small teams of the armed forces in every district, the CEC said.

“Only police have information about various stages of law and order. Hence, all the other forces will take the advice of the police,” he added.

The police will have to come up with a strategic plan now, Huda said.

BNP, which boycotted the last general election, has been demanding the army be deployed during the polls, and be given magisterial power, to ensure a fair election.
