No Bangladeshi nationals as observers from diplomatic missions: Foreign Ministry

The government has asked the diplomatic missions in Dhaka not to include local employees who are Bangladeshi citizens as part the election observer teams for the Dhaka City Corporation Elections tomorrow.

“The ministry understands that certain missions are forming teams of election observers to visit different polling booths on the day of the poll,” reads a foreign ministry letter issued to all the diplomatic missions in Dhaka on January 30.

“In this connection, the ministry would like to point out that according to the ‘Guidelines for Foreign Election Observer 2018’ no local employee of a foreign mission having Bangladeshi nationality is eligible to observe the elections as an international observer,” it said.

The letter said that it would appreciate if diplomatic missions in Dhaka do not include their local employees, who are Bangladeshi citizens, in the DCC polls.
