Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda on Wednesday said the necessity of election will end if people do not participate in voting.

‘Ensuring people’s participation in elections is vital,’ he said while addressing a views-exchange meeting with law enforcers and election officials at the Deputy Commissioner’s office in the evening ahead of the 4th phase upazila parishad election.

The CEC said the district and police administrations, and the Election Commission are key to holding any election but not everything. ‘Voters or people are everything,’ he said.

‘We’ve to ensure people’s participation legally from our respective positions. Or else, the necessity of election will end. There’ll be no need of such meeting and discussion.’
