The Election Commission (EC) will use all the power at its disposal to hold a free and fair election, said Election Commissioner Anisur Rahman on Tuesday.
“We want to hold a free and fair election with the participation of all political parties and dialogue will be held with all parties. Already we sat with some political parties. After the dialogue with us, everyone’s faith in the EC will be strengthened further,” he said.
The Election Commissioner said this while talking to reporters after attending an inaugural programme of NID Smart Card distribution in Gazipur’s Sreepur area on Tuesday.
The schedule of the election will be announced in the first week of November and the election will be held in January next year without using Election Voting Machine (EVM), he added.
This year the Election Commission has decided to send the ballot papers on the election day, said Anisur.
