Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal has commented that the election of Bangladesh has not reached a stable state even today. He said, it can never be said that a small amount of mole will not be irregular.
The CEC said these things at the opening ceremony of judicial magistrates’ training on laws and regulations on the occasion of the 12th National Parliament elections. This training workshop started at Agargaon Bangabandhu International Conference Center from 10 am today Monday.
The CEC said there would be a crisis if there was any violent anti-voting, obstruction of voting. This crisis must be prevented.
The security of the center must be maintained at any cost. Fake voting, attempts to spread black money – must be countered.
For whatever reason, mistrust has been created about voting. The CEC also said that there has been controversy over the past two elections. The CEC said violence has been going on since the start of the campaign. But EC doesn’t want to see casualties.
CEC said, ‘Many say that the EC could have postponed the election for another three months. They think EC is too powerful. But they are not true. Selection must be made within the stipulated time. The Election Commission does not have the power to postpone the election.
Foreigners say that the election of Bangladesh should be fair. They have a right to say that. That is why the international community should show that the election was fair. It must be credible that the voter exercised his right to vote. Kazi Habibul Awal also commented that the election should be made credible with transparency.
