The HC’s direction was sought as a writ petition was filed with it on Wednesday to formulate a law for constituting the Election Commission (EC).
The writ petition was filed by Supreme Court lawyer Yunus Ali Akond in the morning.
Cabinet Secretary, Law Secretary and the EC were made respondent.
Akond said, on Sunday for hearing, the petition will be placed before the joint bench of Justice Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and Justice Mohammad Ullah.
There is a direction in article 118 of the Constitution to formulate a law to form the EC, the lawyer said.
“But no law has been enacted in this regard till now,” he added.
The writ also sought to announce all the ECs, formed till now, unconstitutional as those were formed without any law, Akond said.
