Jatiya Oikya Front leaders say they will also observe the election till the voting close

BNP Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi has said the party will observe the election situation till the end even though some of their candidates have already boycotted the vote.

He made the remarks at a press conference in the party’s Naya Paltan headquarters in Dhaka on Sunday, amid the voting in the 11th general election across the country.

The Jatiya Oikya Front, of which BNP is a major element, has also decided to stay in the fight till the voting close, even though some of their candidates have also withdrawn from the race, leaders of the platforms told reporters.

Rizvi alleged that since morning, ruling Awami League men with the help of police and BGB have occupied around 20% of the polling centers. “They have stuffed around 30 to 40% of the ballots in the box overnight well before the voting started.

“Though many of our candidates across the country want to boycott the polls, we will see the end of it. We are gathering all the complaints and will submit to the Election Commission. However, we have not decided to boycott the election,” he said.

He added that their candidates in Noakhali 2, Khulna 5 and Jamalpur 3 constituencies have announced to boycott the election already, but their decisions were not taken by the central command.

The senior BNP leader also said due to the fear of attacks by the Awami League activists, many candidates could not even come out from home to cast their votes. Two of their men were killed by the rivals as they tried to bar ballot stuffing.

“This election is a part of our movement. But someday this government will fall and democracy will win,” he added.
