Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda says he is satisfied with the vote. There were no irregularities in the vote. They are not ashamed of the vote. An acceptable selection has been made. He said this in response to a question from reporters at a post-poll briefing at Agargaon Election Building in the capital around 4pm on Monday.
Journalists asked KM Nurul Huda, are you satisfied or ashamed of the way the election was held?
The Chief Election Commissioner said there was a huge voter turnout. They have given the opportunity to form a new government by voting with great enthusiasm. From what I have seen in the local and foreign media, it seems that the nation met at the voting festival yesterday. Except for a couple of isolated incidents, no major untoward incidents occurred. We are sorry for the loss of 14 lives.
The election commissioner said that about 80 percent of the people have voted in this election. Due to irregularities, voting in 16 centers has been stopped. The results of Brahmanbaria 2 seats have been postponed. The army has been deployed in response to the demands of all parties in the election. The election has been completed smoothly with the help of army, police, RAB, BGB and other law enforcement agencies. Thank them for that.
Asked by a journalist, the question was, one party got four lakh votes, another party got 400 votes, how can there be such a difference between two equal parties in terms of strength? Opposition groups called for a boycott of the by-elections.
“It’s nothing to us,” the CEC said. People voted so there is so much difference in voting. So, we will not give new elections. As we have seen in the media, television, newspapers, there was no irregularity. So far no irregularities have been reported. If found, I will investigate.
“The allegations are completely untrue,” he said of allegations of ballot sealing the night before.
(CEC) KM Nurul Huda says, we hope the new government will lead the country towards prosperity.
