Five people were jailed for casting fake votes and trying to create chaos at various centres during Cumilla City Corporation election today.
Voting in Cumilla City Corporation election is underway, marked by a lack of enthusiasm and excitement among voters.
It must show courage and determination to restore trust in the electoral system
A case has been filed against three people including National Election Observation Parishad’s President Prof Kalimullah for his comment that Arfanul Haque Rifat, Awami League backed mayoral candidate of Cumilla City Corporation bought nominations in exchange of Tk 60 crore.
For a party so image-conscious and so demanding of "clean image" from its candidates, Awami League surely knows how to make a muck of things and draw unflattering attention.
