EC working to hold free, fair & peaceful city polls: CEC

Election Commission (EC) is working to hold city polls in a free, fair and peaceful manner, said Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda.

Nurul Huda said this while talking to reporters at Dhaka Residential Model School and College on Friday. 

He told: “Political parties’ trust, distrust on Election Commission depends on their mentality. But we never held any biased election and would not do it in future also. We are working to hold city polls in a free, fair and peaceful manner."

Urging the voters to go to polling centers to cast their ballots, the CEC said there would be no hindrance in providing security and there would be a fair election though EVM tomorrow.

I have asked the law enforcing agencies to observe their duties neutrally. Executive and judicial magistrates would also work tomorrow and the polls would be free, fair and a competitive one.

“I never saw political parties’ to have trust on EC in this country," he added
