‘EC decision to use EVM ill-motivated’

Popular News

Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Thursday said the Election Commission (EC) has made itself questionable by taking decision to use the EVM (Electronic Voting Machine) in the polls.   

“The EC has made itself questionable by taking decision about using EVMs in up to 150 seats in the next parliamentary election. It seems like the commission is implementing the government’s agenda,” he said.

The JP chief made the statement while speaking at a preparatory meeting on the council of the party’s Dhaka north city unit at its Banani office in the capital.

Mentioning that common people still cast their votes by seeing electoral symbols as many illiterate and less educate people can’t read names of candidates, he said political parties and common people don’t want polls to be held in EVM.
