Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal said that it is not wrong for foreigners to seek good votes in Bangladesh. He made this comment while inaugurating the training program for election related officials at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center in the capital on Sunday.
CEC Kazi Habibul Awal said, foreigners want a good election in Bangladesh, it is not unfair.
At that time CEC said, ‘Elections should be free, fair and impartial. Controversy is going on around this election. There has been violence over the election issue. There is a debate about the election in the country’s politics. This election must prove at any cost that the government can elect the commission from power.’
Stating that the government is constitutionally obliged to assist in the election, Kazi Habibul Awal said, fair elections are not possible without the support of the government. The environment should be maintained so that the voters can cast their votes smoothly.
At that time, the CEC said, if the voters know that the center has been captured, then they will refuse to vote.
Election Commissioner (EC) Anichur Rahman said, ‘The whole world is watching the election. Our future is uncertain if the election is not acceptable. There is a danger of Bangladesh being isolated financially or otherwise.’
EC Anichur Rahman said that the election should be free and fair and participatory at any cost.
