The High Court on Sunday issued a rule on the Election Commission to explain in four weeks why its decision to withdraw its invitation letter to Bangladesh Khelafat Majlish for dialogue should not be declared illegal.

The bench of Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain and Justice Farid Ahmad passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by the party.

According to the petition, the commission on December 3, 2007 in a letter invited Khelafat Majlish to dialogue on electoral law reforms on December 12.

But the commission in a notice on January 28, 2008, said that it had to revoke the invitation as it found no office of the party in the given address.

The decision of the commission was illegal and without lawful authority as it had issued the invitation after surveying the party's activities, argued Rafiqul Islam Miah, a counsel of the party.
