Gano Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain on Sunday demanded the replacement of Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda with a credible person for holding a free and fair national election.
“We couldn’t be happy after talking to the CEC. We demand that he be replaced with a credible person,” Dr Kamal said while briefing journalists about the country’s overall political situation and election atmosphere at the Jatiya Press Club.He said the wholesale arrest of leaders and activists of opposition parties is still going on which is not conducive to creating a congenial election atmosphere. “This wholesale arrest should be stopped.“
Dr Kamal further said, “Police are the force of the state…they aren’t the government force. Police have to work for creating a proper election atmosphere. They must provide protection to opposition parties.”He also talked about various issues relating to the next general election and the country’s latest political situation.
