He says voter turnout was 60% in first phase municipality polls which is very positive
Awami League General Secretary and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Friday said the government will extend all-out support to the Election Commission (EC) to hold the second phase municipality polls on Saturday in a peaceful and fair manner just like the previous elections.
“The government will not interfere in the polls rather it will extend all-out support to the Election Commission in holding it in a peaceful and fair manner,” he said at a regular press conference at his official residence on parliament premises.
He said voter turnout was more than 60% in the polls with EVM (electronic voting machine) system in the first phase municipality polls which is a very positive thing.
The Awami League general secretary said his party has already formed different committees and sub-committees at the centre and different organizational units.
If anyone has any allegations over the announced committees, he or she can appeal as per the party’s constitution, he said.
He said anyone can submit their complaints to the election tribunal of the party at Dhanmondi 3/A .
“We want to make the party further advanced, democratic, clean and smart under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina. Awami League is making its all-out strides to further strengthen the democratic practice inside the party,” he said.
Quader said there are the highest scopes of practicing internal democracy in Awami League than any other political parties.
