Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal has called upon all field-level officials across the country to carry out their duties unfolding transparency and impartiality during the parliamentary election to be held either at the end of 2023 or early 2024.
The CEC came up with the call while addressing the election management programme on Saturday.
“Organizing an election is a challenging task. Since the responsibility lies also with you, this responsibility must be fulfilled with dedication. The election must gain acceptance among the people,” the CEC said.
“It is essential to demonstrate to the people that the election has been conducted fairly. If we can ensure that people can freely exercise their voting rights, it will be a big success,” he said.
Addressing the officials, Election Commissioner Ahsan Habib Khan said, “I prefer not to dwell on past criticisms. However, by learning from the past, let us collectively set an example of conducting fair elections for future generations.”
“I believe you are the loyal assistants of the Election Commission at the field level, representing us. After we took oath, you have demonstrated 100 percent neutrality in the elections, cooperating sincerely with the returning officer. As a result, every election has been held without any violent incident, in a festive atmosphere,” he added.
