Writ seeks HC directive on EC formation law
Justnews -
Dhaka, Jan 11 (Just News): A Supreme Court lawyer today filed a writ petition with the High Court seeking its directive on the authorities concerned to formulate a law for constituting the Election Commission.

Advocate Eunus Ali Akond submitted the petition saying that the government is supposed to formulate a law for constituting the Election Commission under article 118 of the constitution, but the government is yet to take any initiative in this matter.

In the petition, Eunus said to the court to issue a ruling asking the authorities to explain why they should not be directed to formulate a law for forming the EC.

Cabinet secretary, law secretary, chief election commissioner and the election commission have been mentioned as respondents in the required ruling, Eunus told The Daily Star.

The HC may hold hearing on the petition on next Sunday, he said.
