EC working to hold free, fair city polls: CEC

DHAKA, Jan 31, 2020 (BSS) – Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul
Huda today said Election Commission (EC) is working to hold city polls in
free, fair and peaceful manner.

“Political parties’ trust, distrust on Election Commission depend on their
mentality. But we never held any biased election and would not do it in
future also. We are working to hold city polls in free, fair and peaceful
manner,” he said.

The CEC said these while talking to newsmen at Dhaka Residential Model
School and College, where polling materials including Electronic Voting
Machines (EVMs) were being distributed to the respective presiding officers
of the voting centres.

“I never saw political parties’ to have trust on EC in this country.”

Urging the voters to go to polling centers to cast their ballots, the CEC
said there would be no hindrance in providing security and there would be a
fair election though EVM tomorrow. “I have asked the law enforcing agencies
to observe their duties neutrally. Executive and judicial magistrates would
also work tomorrow and the polls would be free, fair and a competitive one,”
he added.
