BNP's decision to boycott the election halfway into the voting has surprised most observers.
Though not happy with the irregularities and vote rigging during the just held city corporation elections, commoners in Dhaka city want to see their city clean, free of traffic-jam and developed.
STUFFING of ballot boxes whether in national or local elections is nothing new in Bangladesh.
IT is difficult to accept the comments of the CEC that the three city corporation elections were held in a fair and peaceful manner and that there were no threats or anomalies.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina says that the just concluded elections to Chittagong and Dhaka cities were conducted in a free and fair fashion.
Just four hours into the start of voting, BNP’s boycott over irregularities, vote rigging and intimidation of BNP-backed candidates and their workers made the city corporation elections irrelevant.
