BNP rejects Barisal, Rajshahi polls results, to stage demo Thursday

BNP today rejected the election results of Barisal and Rajshahi city corporations and demanded reelection to the two cities.

The party will stage demonstrations in all the towns and metropolitan cities on Thursday to press home its demand, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir gave the announcement at a press conference at the party's Nayapaltan central office.

"Out of three cities, we turned down the election results of Barisal and Rajshahi. We also demand cancellation of the results and reelection to the two cities," he said.

About Sylhet city polls, Fakhrul said their party mayoral candidate could have won with a margin of over one lakh votes had the election been held in a free, fair and credible manner.

The elections to Rajshahi, Barisal, and Sylhet city corporations were held on Monday.

Awami League mayoral candidates were unofficially declared elected in Rajshahi and Barisal city polls on Monday, while the announcement of the results was postponed in Sylhet as the number of votes in two centres where voting was suspended is higher than the difference between the two leading candidates' tallies.
