CEC urges parties to join polls rather showing strength on streets


Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal has urged the political parties to join in the election instead of showing strength on the streets.

The CEC made the remark while addressing journalists in the city’s Nirbachan Bhaban on Thursday.

Emphasizing on bringing balance in the election field, CEC Habibul Awal said the balance should be established in the election field through the participation of political parties and their candidates. “If the parties do not create a balance with their respective candidates and agents then it would not be possible to hold a fair and credible polls only by the police and military at all times,” he added.

Holding a truly democratic election is not possible by showing off strength on the streets, said the CEC adding that “You have to come to the election, there are rules of election and you have to contest according to that.”

He said, “Political parties must have wisdom, they will think about it. I don’t think that a showing off strength on the streets will assist to hold a fair election.”

“All the parties are trying to say that they will meet on the streets and the strength will be tested on the streets. A truly democratic election is not possible by showing power on the streets. The parties should come to the polls to establish the balance.”
