Election Commissioner (EC) Brigadier General (retd) Ahsan Habib Khan has ordered the officials concerned to stop the polls if there is an attempt to fake even a single vote in the 12th National Assembly elections. He gave this order during the training of the officials participating in the election at Manirampur Government High School for Girls in Jessore’s Manirampur this Saturday morning.

Ahsan Habib said to the officials related to the election, ‘If someone insists in the center, if they try to fake even a single vote, then close the polling station and leave. We will hold re-election there.’

Addressing the officers in the training program, EC Habib further said, ‘If any untoward incident occurs, you will immediately inform the law enforcement agencies. They will control the situation. If that is not possible, you will save your life and leave the center. But under no circumstances let the vote be rigged.’
