No compromise with fair polls: CEC
Chief Election Commission KM Nurul Huda says that he would not compromise with anyone for the sake of arranging the next general election in a democratic manner.
“We are determined to arrange the upcoming national polls in line with democratic norms and electoral code of conduct. We will not compromise with anyone in any circumstances,” Huda expressed his boldness while addressing a function at Mymensingh Sadar this noon.
The CEC underscored the need for collective efforts from all walks of life to hold the next general election in a free, fair and inclusive manner.
“Election Commission cannot arrange a successful election alone. We will be able to do so if collective cooperation from all quarters is given to us,” he added.
The CEC went there to inaugurate a voter list updating campaign held at Tarique Memorial Auditorium at the Sadar Upazila.
He also called upon the grassroots level officials engaged in voter list updating activities to carry out their duties sincerely and honestly so that they can prepare an accurate voter list ahead of the 11th parliamentary election.
“We will not accept any mistake or negligence in preparing an accurate and acceptable voter list. We will take tough action if anyone’s negligence is found in this regard,” the CEC warned.
