People were not ready to cast their votes using the Electronic Voting Machine (EVMs) in the election scheduled for January 30, said Tabith Awal, BNP’s mayoral candidate for the Dhaka North City Corporation election.
He told: “Use ballot papers instead of EVMs as people are still not ready to vote using the e-system." He said reiterating our party’s call to the Election Commission (EC) to not use the voting machines.
On the other hand, Tabith said that majority of the political parties were against using the machines for the elections, but the EC was rigid in its stance. The commission should take the demands of the parties and the voters into consideration.
He told: “I am getting positive responses from the people. They would cast their votes for me to change their fates."
