Former chief election commissioner ATM Shamsul Huda today said Pakistan is better than Bangladesh in the aspect of some of its state organs.
“Their judiciary, anti- corruption and bureaucracy are performing better than us,” Huda said during a discussion organised by Transparency International Bangladesh.
“Pakistan is a failed state. But even then, they are doing better than us in some aspects. Even in some cases Nepal is also performing better than us,” he said.
Huda said all the movements in the country are basically election-centric. “Once the political party assumed the office, it started taking various initiatives to weaken the institutions.”
The former bureaucrat also said despite such drawbacks, Bangladesh is moving forward and hoped that the country will continue to do so in the coming days.
Rizwan-ul-Alam, director (Outreach and Communication) of TIB, presented the keynote paper at the discussion titled “SDG 16 and good governance: Government, Mass media and citizens”.
