There is no dispute among election commissioners: Kobita Khanam

DHAKA, Oct 17, 2018 (BSS) – Election Commissioner Kobita Khanam today said there might be difference of opinions among the election commissioners but it cannot be called dispute.

“There are five commissioners in the election commission (EC). Any decision regarding election will be taken on the basis of opinions of the majority,” she told journalists at her office at the Election Bhaban here.

About note of decent of Election Commissioner Mahbub Talukdar, Kobita said, “What happened centering Mahbub Talukder was not called note of decent as no decision was taken at the meeting.”

Kobita said speeches of Mahbub Talukder at the meeting were not acceptable as those would go against the constitution.

“We are now working on some amendments to electoral code of conduct ahead of the upcoming general election… But no major amendments to electoral code of conduct will be made,” she added.
