Senior Secretary of the Election Commission (EC). Alamgir said, complete preparations for the Chittagong City Corporation (CHSIC) elections are over.
We hope that fair, competitive and peaceful elections will be held in Chittagong.
In the afternoon, he said these things to the journalists at the election building located in Agargaon of the capital.
Md. Alamgir said that preparations have been completed from the commission. Especially since all the responsibility is vested in the Returning Officer.
There are law enforcement personnel, our returning officers, polling officers and since voting is going on in EVMs, everyone is now staying in Chittagong to provide technical support to EVMs.
Complete preparation. We hope that a fair and competitive peaceful election will be held. All necessary steps have been taken for this.
The EC Secretary said that law enforcement forces have been kept so that the voters can come to the polling station and no one should obstruct them. They will do that.
In response to the question whether there is a risk of violence in the elections, he said that the intelligence department informed us that some centers are risky.
When the Returning Officer gives the list, the Returning Officer and the police administration deploy more law enforcement personnel in those centers accordingly.
He said that all the necessary security measures have been taken in Chasik elections. We think the Election Commission has done everything necessary to make the election very fair and beautiful.
He said that outsiders who are not voters in the area, may come to the polling station and make a mess so that they cannot do such things, there will be police guard on the roads that enter the city; So that no people other than the voters can come to the polling station and cause any disturbance or outside the polling station so that they cannot create any kind of obstacle in maintaining law and order. We feel that the Election Commission has taken all necessary measures to conduct the elections in a very fair and beautiful manner.
Regarding the statement of an election commissioner that the commission cannot avoid the responsibility of violence and irregularities in the elections, he said, only the honorable commissioner can say that. I have no say.
Hoping to have a fair election? In response to a journalist's question. Alamgari says, of course. There is no reason not to hope.
