AL congratulates EC for 'wonderful election'

Awami League today congratulated the Election Commission for holding a “wonderful, free and fair national election”.

An Awami League delegation led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s Advisor HT Imam also conveyed a message to the Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda saying that people will have more confidence on the EC after the national election held on December 30.

“We came to the commission to felicitate them on completing a wonderful election,” HT Imam told reporters after holding a meeting with the CEC at Nirbachan Bhaban in Dhaka’s Agargaon.

"No other elections of the past were so disciplined and well coordinated and the EC performed its constitutional duties wonderfully," he said.

“People will have more confidence on the EC now. The way we are getting recognition from aboard after the election, which has made us proud,” he added.

When his attention was drawn on Jatiya Oikyafront and BNP’s demand of fresh election under neutral government, HT Imam said, “New election is not possible. Demand of caretaker government is an old one. So discussion on that issue will not be fruitful.”

The EC certainly will take necessary steps if there have been any irregularities during election, he further said.
