Experts are commenting that the Election Commission should think again about these candidates and political parties.

Chittagong University Political Science Department Professor Dr. Mahfuz Parvez said, ‘There needs to be an open environment for democracy, everyone can participate in it – that’s the key. Now if many participate with that opportunity, he cannot be stopped. But in different countries of the world, if a certain amount or percentage of votes is not obtained, the registration of the party is canceled or the candidate cannot stand in the next election. Many people are standing here even after getting 50-60-100 votes. Which is getting ridiculous. It causes costs, creates chaos. So I think a law should be made, so that no candidate can participate in the next election unless he gets a certain number of votes.’
