53.66 lakh new voters set to be enrolled: EC

Bangladesh has got 53.66 lakh new voters after its 2018 general election, according to the draft updated electoral rolls revealed by the Election Commission on Monday.

The number of voters will stand at 10,96,06,187 (nearly 11 crore), including 5,53,25,292 men, 5,42,80,542 women and 353 transgender, once the updated voter list is finalised.

EC Additional Secretary Mokhlesur Rahman revealed the draft electoral rolls at a press conference at Nirbachan Bhaban in the city. Director General of the National Identity Registration Wing Brig Gen Saidul Islam was present.

A total of 67,58,341 fresh voters -- 35,82,163 men and 31,75,825 women -- have been enrolled in the draft list, while 13,92,236 voters who died by the time have been deleted from the list.

Meanwhile, the Commission has identified 2,07,635 dual voters and removed them from the list during the updating programme.

The Election Commission for the first time disclosed the number of transgender voters collecting their data with their own identities during the updating exercise.
