Bangladesh Elections 2007

Will they happen? And if so, will they be fair?

Free, efficient EC must for fair polls

Posted by Nirbachon on July 8, 2006

Speakers at the regional dialogue in Chittagong yesterday observed that an independent, impartial and efficient Election Commission (EC) has to be established first for holding a free and fair election.They said everybody has to be more conscious while casting vote and compel the political parties to nominate only honest and eligible candidates.

A dialogue between the ruling and opposition parties is also needed to bring in the reforms in the EC, and sincerity and political tolerance is a must for this, they said.

The dialogue jointly organised by the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD), the daily Prothom Alo, Channel i, and The Daily Star also witnessed hot debate on the role of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) in curbing crime.
