Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim today said the Awami League has no objection if the mechanised electoral device is introduced in the next general election.
"The electoral voting machines are now being used in many countries in the world ...So, if the Election Commission thinks to introduce electoral device instead of ballot papers for receiving votes, the AL will support it," he said.
The minister was addressing at voluntary blood donors reception at the Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka. Quantum Foundation Bangladesh organised the programme, chaired by Chief Coordinator Madam Nahar Al Bokhari.
Regarding the continuity of the constitution, Nasim said the next parliament election will be held in the certain period under the present elected government. But whatever the parties would take part in the election are their respective matters, he added.
Welcoming the EC's decision to introduce electoral voting devices, the AL presidium member said, “Now people are very much conscious ...there is no scope of vote rigging at the period of digital age when the people are holding National Identity (NID) and smart card.”
Later, the minister handed over more than 200 crests among the blood donors who donated blood for more than 25 times.
