The ruling Awami League decided to send names to the search committee for reconstitution of the Election Commission (EC).
The decision was taken on Monday at a joint meeting of Awami League central Working Committee and Advisory Council at Ganabhaban with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.
The search committee on Saturday urged the political parties, which held talks with the President about the EC reformation, to send five names by January 31.
The AL convened the emergency meeting after getting the call from the search committee, which was asked to place two names of eligible individuals against each post of the EC before the President by February 8.
The President will appoint a five-member EC among the names recommended by the search committee.
The last date for submitting names is 3:00pm on Tuesday.
