Awami League (AL) has to take permission from Election Commission (EC) if it wants to hold any rally in Dhaka on December 10, on the occasion of International Human Rights Day.

EC Additional Secretary Ashok Kumar Debnath said this while addressing reporters after a meeting with European Union (EU) election representative at Agargaon in the capital on Sunday (December 3).

He said, "We have not yet received a letter about Awami League's rally. We will look into the matter after receiving the letter. Permission from the Returning Officer will be required to hold the assembly as per the law".

He said the EC will take action according to the code of conduct regarding the Awami League’s rally on December 10.
Earlier, AL said the rally under the banner of Dhaka Metropolitan South Awami League will be held at the south gate of Baitul Mukarram National Mosque at 3pm, said a media release of the ruling party.

"To mark the Human Rights Day on 10 December, a rally has been arranged demanding prompt justice for the families of victims affected by the BNP-Jamaat's arson attacks, reads the release.

Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader is scheduled to join the rally as chief guest. Central leaders of the party will also attend the rally, the party said.
