He said the chief election commissioner himself admitted that their commission could not ensure free and fair election

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir has said their party is taking part in the upcoming city polls to expose further that no credible election is possible under Awami League.

“Many people ask one question as to why we are joining the polls. First, I would like to say when we had boycotted the 2014 election it was said that we made a mistake. We took part in the 2018 election to prove we did not make mistake in 2014 as no fair election can be held under Awami League,” he said.

Speaking at a discussion on Wednesday, the BNP leader also said. “Now, we are asked again why we are going to join the city corporation elections. 

"I would like to say we are taking part in the polls to expose again that no fair and credible election can be held under Awami League.”

Fakhrul came up with the remarks apparently reacting to Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader’s question about the reason behind BNP’s participation in the city elections since the party has no confidence in the Election Commission (EC), reports UNB.

Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal arranged the discussion at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking its 41st founding anniversary.

Fakhrul said Chief Election Commissioner Nurul Huda himself admitted that their commission could not ensure free and fair election while another Commissioner Mahbub Talukder clearly said this Election Commission is not capable of holding a credible election.
