Economist Intelligence Unit in its July monthly report on Bangladesh has hinted that the upcoming general election, scheduled in the 3rd week of December 2008, may be delayed. "The next general election is expected to be held in late 2008 or early 2009", it said.
In its June report, EIU had said the election schedule may be 'revised'.
In July report, EIU said: "We expect the parliamentary election to take place in December or the first quarter of 2009 at the latest. "
That means the scheduled election will be pushed back in March 2009, a possibility that daily Naya Diganta has also reported today.
