Dhaka, 7 August, Abnews: Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda no guarantee can be given that there will be no irregularities in elections.
The CEC came up with the comment while speaking at a workshop as the chief guest at the Election Training Institute at Agargaon in the capital on Tuesday.
In reply to a query on whether there is congenial atmosphere to hold the national election, especially after allegations of irregularities in the recently-concluded polls in five city corporations, Huda said, “Such anomalies are generally seen to take place during the elections. I do not agree on the point that the city corporation elections were not satisfactory.”
“We always take actions against irregularities that usually take place in general elections. You have seen we took extra measures during Barisal city polls, where there were more irregularities,” he said.
