Kushtia – Citing the example of forming present Election Commission (EC) through search committee in consultation with all political parties, Awami League joint general secretary Mahbubul Alam Hanif on Tuesday claimed that there is no more transparent instance of forming EC in any democratic country than that of Bangladesh. UNB news agency reported
The ruling party leader made the observation in reply to the US ambassador to Bangladesh Stephens Bloom Bernicat at a views exchange programme with party leaders at his residence in the town.
Stephens Bloom Bernicat on Monday said her country wants the next general election in Bangladesh to be held in a free and fair manner. “The Election Commission should be independent, strong and impartial so that it can hold a neutral and credible election,” she said.
Hanif said they (USA) can talk about their cooperation regarding Bangladesh’s development adding “But the formation of Election Commission is an internal matter.”
The ruling party leader alleged that BNP, in a planned way, wants to destroy country’s electoral system and Election Commission. So no election commission, other than “Aziz-type Commission”, will be acceptable to them.
About the BNP probe report into the attack on Santal community in Gaibandha’s Gobindaganj, he said that BNP is a political party. It has no jurisdiction to form probe committee or no one bestowed power upon them to form the committee. ”The government doesn’t care about their report.”
