Voting by day will not be by day, by night: CEC

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Kazi Habibul Awal said the vote would be as per his rules. Voting by day will be by day, not by night.

He was speaking to the media in front of his office at the election building in the capital on Tuesday (May 24) morning.

Regarding EVMs, the CEC said, “We have had five meetings on EVMs, but we have not been able to be fully credible.” There will be more meetings. There will be a review. We have said that we want to gain the trust of everyone with EVM. We will also have a technical meeting on Wednesday.

Kazi Habibul Awal claimed that he did not say anything ‘bizarre’ like announcing crores of rupees reward if he could identify the fault of EVM.

“We have no intention of turning the election into a farce,” he said. Let there be a healthy trend in electoral politics through participatory elections of all parties.

At that time four election commissioners Ahsan Habib Khan, Rasheda Sultana, Md. Alamgir and Anisur Rahman.

Recently, Election Commissioner Anisur Rahman said in Madaripur that the CEC has announced a reward of ১০ 10 million if the EVM is found to be faulty. With this statement, Kazi Habibul Awal expressed his position in the criticism of the party and various quarters.

He said the confusion had spread – the CEC had announced ১০ 10 million, which was bizarre. The CEC can never say such bizarre things.

Kazi Habibul Awal said that everyone should be careful when talking about election commissioners. Should be more responsible.

The EC’s position has been lowered by this statement about EVM. This will tarnish the image. People want to bring confidence in the EC, if it is ruined in the beginning then the future election of the commission may be hampered. Still trying, the four commissioners and I are committed to fulfilling our mission.

He said it was not yet time to take up the challenge with EVMs. The CEC said that the time has not yet come to challenge EVM. There will be ten more meetings on this, now if we throw away the challenge that there is nothing wrong with the EVM – it can’t happen.
