Is Bangladesh's December Election Cancelled?

Not sure why it escaped attention of all Bangladeshi blogger. Wall Street Journal is saying that the planned December election in Bangladesh has been cancelled. It said in its commentary under Review and Outlook Section on 23rd July that: 'The government has cancelled plans for a December election over the objections of the two main political parties, whose leaders have also been in and out of jail.'

Read the story here, the relevant text is on 2nd para:

Obviously, the WSJ has got it wrong. Or is it the case that they got it right, but we haven't heard yet the official announcement to that effect? Some one should tell the Government that the WSJ's story has serious implication and official steps should be taken without further delay to correct the mistake in the WSJ report
