No confirmation on using EVM in next election
The Election Commission (EC) has yet to finalise the use of electronic voting machines (EVM) in the upcoming national election. EC Secretary Mohammad Abdullah made the statement to journalists after the 4th election commission meeting of the new EC on Sunday. He said: “The meeting was held to formulate the roadmap for the next general election. We discussed several agenda during the meeting including creating four new committees, amending the election observer policy, and correction of dead voter list and the forming an election commission action plan.” “We look forward to the response from all political parties and citizens groups when the EC decides to use EVM in the election,” he added. “The EC will introduce EVM to a few upazila and union council elections and then city corporation elections as a pilot project after we gauge the response of political parties,” Secretary Abdullah said. The EC secretary urged political parties not to worry about implementing the EVM as the new EC is trying to organise a "100% controversy free-election." “The EC will soon publish the Election Observation (Amended) Policy-2013 on its official website and it will be open to correction, observation and suggestions from stakeholders for one week.” “The election commission action plan for the next national election will comprise 23 points, all of which will be discussed and determined in the next meeting of the commission.” “The commission will discuss election law, policy and other specific agenda with all stakeholders before finalising the next national election roadmap,” said Abdullah. He also added the EC may appoint a number of consultants to increase performance in a number of sectors.
