Awami League (AL) President Sheikh Hasina said her party would not accept the updated voter list prepared by the present Election Commission (EC) as it violated High Court (HC) directives. She said the present 'politicised' EC cannot create an accurate voter list.
Demanding drafting of a fresh and correct voter list with photographs, Hasina said that thousands of eligible voters across the country are yet to be put on the list. Hasina was speaking at a views-exchange meeting with the party's grassroots-level leaders from Habiganj and Moulvibazar districts at her Dhanmondi office in the city.
Eighteen US Congressmen have written a letter to the Prime Minister, Khaleda Zia, requesting her to start a new and fully independent investigation of the grenade attack on the opposition Awami League leadership including its president Sheikh Hasina.
