The decision came in a meeting in the Election Commission office on Sunday, and an electoral roadmap was also finalised in the meeting attended by Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda, Election Commission Secretary Mohammad Abdullah Said told journalists. “The commission has planned to hold several rounds of dialogue with political parties between August and October,” he said, adding that dialogue would be held with civil society on 31 July and with the media early next month. “Seven issues have been given importance in the roadmap, which will be released in the form of a book on 16 July.
