Dhaka, November 23:
Bangladeshâ€™s main opposition called off a four-day transport blockade today after the interim government bowed to pressure to replace an election chief accused of seeking to rig January polls.
â€œWe have suspended our blockade but our movement will continue for free and fair elections. We want reconstitution of the election commission and revision of the existing votersâ€™ list which has 14 million fake voters,â€ Awami League leader Sheikh Hasina Wajed said. The caretaker government today named former judge Mahfuzur Rahman, one of Azizâ€™s three deputies, as the acting chief election commissioner.
