Oikyafront demands CEC’s resignation


Jatiya Oikyafront demanded immediate resignation of Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda.

“This shameless, incompetent, and dysfunctional Election Commission has to be accountable to people for its failure to create an election atmosphere in the country. We demand the Chief Election Commissioner to quit immediately. Or else, no minimum level of election atmosphere will be created,” said Oikyafront spokesman Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday, UNB reports.

Speaking at a press conference after a meeting of the alliance leaders at BNP chairperson’s Gulshan office, he said their alliance thinks the EC has to be freed from the leadership of a ‘spineless and biased’ person like Nurul Huda to ensure a free, fair and neutral election. “We demand the President to appoint a non-partisan and impartial person as the Chief Election Commissioner instantly.”

Hours after they walked out of a meeting with the CEC, the alliance came up the demand.

Jatiya Oikyafront leaders, led by Dr Kamal Hossain, walked out of a meeting with the Election Commission, led by Nurul Huda, as they found the Commission’s attitude ‘biased and impolite’ one.
