Effective measures against the violations of electoral code of conduct should be taken, Mahbub says

Election Commissioner Mahbub Talukder has urged the chief election commissioner (CEC) to take steps mentioning the activities of executive magistrates against the violations of the electoral code of conduct in the upcoming Dhaka City Corporations polls are not visible.

“It will be impossible to resolve the Election Commission’s confidence crisis if it does not take any effective measures against the violations of the electoral code of conduct,” Mahbub said in a letter sent to CEC KM Nurul Huda on Monday, reports BSS.

Copies of the letter were also forwarded to three other election commissioners, returning officers concerned of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) and Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) polls. 

According to the letter, if the Commission fails to firmly conduct the election process as per law, this will raise questions among people about its role and expose its inaction to them.

In the letter, Mahbub also said he sent another letter on January 13, where he requested the authorities concerned to issue a circular for taking steps to bar MPs from taking part in electioneering.

He also said DNCC published an ad titled “Looking back at 2019: Mosquito Control” in a vernacular daily on Monday which is nothing but a publicity of the success of the immediate past mayor.

Necessary action should be taken against the officials responsible for the act, the election commissioner added.

About the affidavits filed by candidates, he said there are many allegations about those but no activities from the Election Commission are visible to scrutinize those. “This has put the provision of the affidavit into question and is tarnishing the commission’s image,” Mahbub said calling for taking steps in this regard on an urgent basis.
