A small advance team of armed forces can be sent to each district to collect primary information and data on the communication system, physical infrastructures and electoral environment, conditions of the election area, it said.
The deployed members of the armed forces will assist the civil administration in maintaining the law and order in line with the Code of Criminal Procedure following the recommendations of executive magis-trates in the election duty.
The members of the armed forces will remain deployed at nodal points and convenient locations in each district, upazila or metropolitan area. Then the members of armed forces will be deployed in coordina-tion of the returning officers.
Executive magistrates will be deployed with teams of the armed force.
On request of the returning officers or assistance returning officers, they will have to do legal activities and other works as per the reality and requirements.
