In preparation for the general elections on December 29, if we take a very good look at Awami League and Bangladesh Nationalist Party nominated candidates, it may be noted that many convicts and corrupt businessmen, bureaucrats are still on the poll race. Although Awami League has introduced many new faces, BNP is still in favour of controversial personalities. Both the parties have controversial alliances too. There are independent candidates but it appears that they do not have flow of cash and power. To judge the value of democracy, to save the nation from endless miseries, we must not vote the corrupt candidates. And if we find no honest candidates we must cast "No" votes.
