‘Keep faith in president’
Staff Correspondent:Awami League spokesperson Mahbubul Alam Hanif asked BNP ‘to keep fait in President Abdul Hamid’ on the newly formed Search Committee to reconstitute the Election Commission.
‘All members of the search committee are skillful and they have no any political link’ the Joint General Secretary of the ruling party said this in a press briefing on Friday. BNP should not make any controversy about the committee, he added.
Hanif was addressing a program organized by a labor front of the Awami League at Dhaka Dental College in the capital today. ‘The new EC to be formed by the President Abdul Hamid will be acceptable to all’, he said.
Meanwhile, BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Friday said the latest formed search committee for the reconstitution of the Election Commission will never be able to shape a neutral EC. He alleged that the committee has been filled with those loyal to the ruling Awami League family.
“Filled by those loyal to Awami League family, it will be not possible for this search committee to constitute a neutral next Election Commission,” Fakhrul said during the briefing.
On Wednesday, President Abdul Hamid has formed the Search-Committee to reconstitute the Election Commission. The six-member committee will search and recommend new members for the commission ahead of the next general elections.
