Dhaka – Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda will announce the schedule for 11th general election through a nationwide address through radio and television.
Huda will address the nation at 7:00pm, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the Election Commission.
His announcement will come amid a protest by a group of opposition political parties led by former foreign minister Kamal Hossain.
The group, Jatiya Oikya Front, will march towards the election commission to protest the polls schedule as its dialogue with government ended inconclusive on Wednesday.
The Election Commission, earlier, decided to announce the voting date on Thursday as the election must be conducted by January 28.
