Law Minister Anisul Huq told Parliament on Monday that the Election Commission will consider the use of electronic voting machines (EVMs) after making those fully flawless.
Replying to a scripted question from M Abdul Latif MP (Chittagong-11), the minister, who is in-charge of the EC, said the Commission faced problems while announcing election results in some places as technical flaws appeared in the electronic voting machines.“The commission will consider the use of the machines again making those completely flawless,” he told the House.
The minister, however, said there is no legal complexity in using the EVMs in the next countrywide union parishad elections likely to be held early 2016.
But the Commission is yet to take any decision to use the electronic machines in the next Union Parishad elections, he added.- UNB
