It’s not for foreigners to say how it should be carried out, he says

British High Commissioner to Bangladesh Robert Chatterton Dickson on Wednesday said anything related to the election should be a Bangladesh-driven and Bangladesh-led process, noting that it is not foreigners to say how the election should be held here.

He said: “It’s not for the foreigners to say how the election should be carried out,” adding that it is a matter for the Bangladeshi people to decide.

The High Commissioner said there is plenty of expertise and talent in Bangladesh to make the election a Bangladesh-driven process reflecting the values of the country’s constitution.

The British envoy made the remarks while responding to a question at “DCAB Talk” held at Jatiya Press Club.
