The Election Commission will adopt all possible measures to ensure 100% turnout of female voters in the election

Election Commission (EC) is committed to create safe and congenial atmosphere for female voters in the upcoming 11th parliamentary election, said an EC official.

Election Commissioner Kabita Khanam, while inaugurating a two-day workshop in Rajshahi as chief guest, on Tuesday said: “The Election Commission will adopt all possible measures to ensure 100% turnout of female voters in the election.”

United Nation Development Program (UNDP) is hosting a workshop titled “Gender and Election” at Nanking Darbar Hall in Rajshahi.

Kabita Khanam said female voters comprise almost half of the country’s total voters. The commission is committed to ensure a safe atmosphere for the female voters during polling time so that they can exercise their right to franchise comfortably.

Replying to a question, Kabita Khanam told the journalists that the returning officers were given instructions to give out certified copies to the rejected candidates as soon as possible.

The 11th general election is scheduled to be held across Bangladesh on December 30.
