JP to avoid stage-managed polls: Ershad
Jatiya Party will not take part in a stage-managed election, said the party Chairman HM Ershad yesterday.
Although people want a peaceful parliamentary election, there is doubt whether one will be held or not. People lost faith in the Election Commission and it has become controversial, he said.
“We are ready to participate in the election but the Election Commission must be strong and neutral and has to rise above controversy,” he told as chief guest an iftar and doa mahfil organised by Chittagong city unit of Jatiya Party in Chittagong Club of the port city.
The programme was chaired by the Chittagong city unit President Solaiman Alam Sheth.
