Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda has said they will not take orders from political parties.

He said this while inaugurating a training on the use of Electronic Voting Machines (EVM), ahead of the 11th parliamentary election at the Election Commission (EC) building, at Agargaon, in Dhaka on Sunday. 

Nurul Huda said he has ordered officials to work in the public’s interest.

The commission is considering providing training for polling agents for the first time this year, said the CEC.

He said the commission will slowly introduce EVMs.

Despite the reservations of many political parties, including out-of-parliament opposition BNP, the EC decided to amend the Representation of the People Order (RPO) 1972; in order to use EVMs in the upcoming national election that is scheduled for the end of December.

The CEC said the EC must bridge the gap between it and the political parties for a free and fair election.
