Bangladesh Election Commission has been facing criticism about its voter list.
The issue had been in the media for the last three four months. Chief Election Commissioner M. A. Aziz severely criticized the media and blamed them for misinformation. He made the comments at a luncheon meeting of the American Chamber of Commerce in Bangladesh in Dhaka.
At the meeting, US Ambassador Patricia A Butenis underscored the need for holding the next parliamentary elections in a free and fair manner and for ensuring a level-playing field for the opposition.
