Citizens’ Committee 2006 Officially Announces its Declaration


The Citizens' Committee 2006, a platform of a group of civil society members, yesterday said nominating "clean" candidates for the next general election has now become a national demand.

Dr Debapriya Bhattacharya , the member secretary of the committee , said at a press briefing at the Centre for Policy Dialogue that a cross-section of the people in the society now demands that candidates to be nominated by different political parties for the forthcoming election should be clean .

While presenting the declaration, he also said that the Citizens' Committee members are not going to participate in politics but want to strengthen it as more acceptable and sound, he said, adding that the civil society wants to mount pressure from outside and ensure a transparent and fair political process free from corruption.

Dr Bhattacharya also said that the High Court (HC) order given in May 2005 directing the Election Commission (EC) to collect information about nominated candidates in the form of affidavit and disseminate it to the people through mass media should be implemented.
