Citizens for Good Governance (Sujan) requested the Election Commission and other authorities concerned to take adequate measures so that the untoward incidents occurred during Khulna City Corporation election are not repeated in Gazipur City Corporation election.
After a round table meeting titled Proposed Budget 2018-19: Citizens’ Musing’, Sujan Secretary Dr. Badiul Alam Majumdar urged this while responding to the question of journalists at National Press Club in Dhaka on Monday.
He said an example of a defective election was established through Khulna city corporation election as the Election Commission (EC) failed to handle the elections fairly.
Badiul Alam said Election Commission (EC) gained trust by holding Rangpur City Corporation election, but lost the trust through Khulna City Corporation election.
He alleged that, in Gazipur, several opposition activists were arrested, and a candidate was seen travelling in a police car, which are definitely ominous.
He expected Election Commission (EC) would properly carry out its responsibility. Gazipur City Corporation elections will be fair, neutral and credible, he hoped.
