Staff Reporter :
Election Commission (EC) waits for the final decision on the Representation of the People Order (RPO), 1972 (President's Order), said Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Habibul Awal.
We could not pursue the matter for everlasting, said CEC while talking to the newsmen at the Nirbhachan Bhavan in Agargoan on Sunday.
On the other hand, EC has given a time-limit to the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Legislative and Parliamentary Affairs Division to inform about the progress of RPO.
EC said they did not get any response from the ministry since they sent it for three and half month.  Finally, they gave time-limit to December 15 for answering on the issue of RPO.
EC's Deputy Secretary Abdul Halim singed letter has revealed the information.
Kazi Habibul Awal said we could not wait and pursue for decision on RPO amendment until death. For that we want to a final decision over the matter. If we won't get response from authority then we will concentrate another issue.
As we give them a time-limit I think the authority will response, CEC added further saying that otherwise EC will take decision by own.
