The Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) has expressed concern, stating that there is no indication of meaningful participation in the upcoming national parliamentary elections.
Due to the escalating political violence during election schedule announcement, it is believed that a participatory election cannot be achieved this time, said TIB Executive Director Dr Iftekharuzzaman during the “Democracy, good governance, political commitment of good governance practices: TIB’s recommendations” press conference held at the Dhanmondi office on Thursday (30 November).
“We have already expressed our concern regarding this. The government may be formed through an election, but it will not be one where people’s right to vote is ensured,” he added.
According to reports, the think tank’s research office Kawshar Ahmed presented 76 separate recommendations in nine categories including parliament, judiciary, and some other sectors.
Along with implementing “No Vote” in local and national polls, it was also recommended that after being elected the prime ministers should resign from their political post to ensure the principle of all parties’ government.
