Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader yesterday said he does not think the upazila parishad elections can be held in a perfect manner.
“Nothing can be termed perfect. There will be mistakes and errors, and we have to move forward along with the mistakes,” Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said at a briefing at the party's Dhanmondi office in Dhaka.
Quader said this while talking about the upcoming upazila elections and the inevitability of polls-time errors.
He also expressed his satisfaction over the recently-held Dhaka North City Corporation by-election, saying there was no “ominous incident” during the polls despite so many candidates contesting the polls.
The Election Commission has already declared the schedule for Upazila Parishad elections, which will be held in five phases starting from March 10.
Schedules of four phases of the elections have already been rolled out. The fifth phase of election is likely to be held on June 18.
