No guarantee of glitch-free election: CEC

Dhaka, Aug 7 (Just News): Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda today said that it cannot be guaranteed that there will be no anomalies in general elections.

The CEC said this while talking to reporters at the Election Training Institute at Agargaon.

Replying to a query on whether there is congenial atmosphere to hold the national election, especially after allegations of irregularities in the recently-concluded polls in five city corporations, Huda said: “I do not agree on the point that the city corporation elections were not satisfactory.”

“We always take actions against irregularities that usually take place in general elections. You have seen we took extra measures during Barisal city polls, where there were more irregularities,” he told reporters.
