EVM to be used in parliamentary polls: EC

Election Commissioner Md Alamgir on Sunday said the electronic voting machine (EVM) will be used in the 12th national elections.

However, the decision about the number of EVM using constituencies has not been finalised yet, he said this while briefing reporters at his office at Election Commission Secretariat in the capital on Sunday.

“The election commission will decide the numbers by this month as per its capability and rationality. Widespread awareness campaign will take place in the EVM using constituencies,” said the Election Commissioner.

There is a debate in the political arena over use of EVM in the election. BNP is terming the EVM a machine of rigging, AL is in favour of using it in all 300 constituencies.
