The Election Commission (EC) has resolved not to allow a live broadcast of its meeting with representatives of political parties scheduled for this afternoon to discuss a framework for a new election, reports said. 

The resolution was made at an EC meeting which began at 10am.  First item on the agenda for consideration was the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order's (Capo) order that Channels 9 and 11 television stations broadcast live today's meeting between election commissioner and political parties.

The meeting reportedly decided to defy Capo's order and not allow the live broadcast. The decision was based on the fact that the EC had never allowed a live broadcast of its meetings with political party leaders before.
