EU asks  Bangladesh’s Political Parties to Refrain from Unsubstantiated Charges Against EC 


European Union (EU) election observation mission chief yesterday urged the political parties to refrain from making 'unsubstantiated' allegations against the election administration as it might harm the polls process.

He hoped that the parties would participate in the upcoming parliamentary election with a 'positive attitude' and accept the poll results.

Lamsdroff was giving a talk at Dhaka Reporters Unity following a meeting with the chief adviser.

“If someone makes an allegation, it has to be substantiated with documents. Unsubstantiated allegations will not serve interest of the people, ” the EU cheif observer said in reply to a question about BNP's allegation of 'conspiracy' by the election administration.

He said he is convinced that the EC is working sincerely to have everything in order. It faces huge workload as it is taking preparations for both national and upazila elections.

Lamsdroff hailed lifting of the state of emergency and said deployment of army to help ensure a congenial atmosphere for polls is a constructive effort that does not contradict international norms.
