JS polls can’t be inclusive sans BNP: CEC

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda yesterday said the next parliamentary polls will not be inclusive unless BNP participates in it. “You asked me whether the parliamentary polls will be participatory. How is it possible without BNP? The general elections cannot be participatory without the BNP,” he said in reply to a query of journalists at the Nirbachan Bhaban in the capital’s Agargaon.  

“The BNP is a major political party. They have important role in the political arena. The elections would not be participatory if they don’t join it. I have said it before and I’m saying this again. We want all the political parties to take part the next parliamentary polls,” he said.

“We always say that the Election Commission will maintain its neutrality during the elections. All parties will get level playing field and no one will get any preferential treatment,” he added.

The CEC also hoped that all the political parities will participate in the next general elections to make it an inclusive one.

In recent time, the BNP alleged that the ruling Awami

League was trying to sideline BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia by ‘forcing the court in announcing verdict in corruption cases’ against her.

Although yesterday was a government holiday, the CEC was present in his office as Awami League representatives collected

nomination papers on behalf of President Md Abdul Hamid for the presidential poll. Chief Whip of parliament ASM Firoze and others collected the form.

The last date of collecting nomination papers for presidential election is on February 5. If no other candidate draws nomination papers, the current president will be elected unopposed for another term.
