EC orders security arrangements for repolling


The Election Commission has ordered deployment of law enforcers in the 392 polling stations of eight constituencies ahead of the re-voting slated for January 16.


The EC issued the order to the authorities concerned on Monday.


The voting in the polling stations was suspended due to widespread violence during the January-5 parliamentary elections.


Of the 392 polling centres, 57 are in Dinajpur-4, two in Kurigram-4, 54 in Gaibandha-1, 80 in Gaibandha-3, 72 in Gaibandha-4, 46 in Bogra-7, 60 in Jessore-5 and 21 centres in Laxmipur-1.


Besides, the voting in 205 more polling centres was suspended during the election in 147 constituencies, where the re-voting is not needed as the winner candidates of the constituencies outplayed their nearest rival candidates with big margins, which is larger than the voters of the postponed centres.


Of the 205 polling stations, 19 centres are in Thakurgaon-1, one in Thakurgaon-3, 12 in Dinajpur-1, one in Dinajpur-3, 18 in Dinajpur-5, six in Dinajpur-6, 14 in Nilphamari-1, four in Nilphamari-3, seven in Rangpur-3, 46 in Rangpur-4, two in Rangpur-6, one in Kurigram-1, 12 in Gaibandha-2, one in Sirajganj-5, 20 in Jhenaidah-3, two in Magura-2, two in Jamalpur-4, one centre each in Sherpur-1 and 3, one in Munshiganj-1, one in Molvibazar-1, two in Habiganj-2, two in Brahmanbaria-5, one in Comilla-3, 15 in Comilla-15, one in Feni-3, 10 in Laxmipur-4 and two in Chittagong-15.
