Chief Adviser Dr
Fakhruddin Ahmed urged the electorates to cast their votes consciously and
wisely and appealed to the political parties to gracefully accept the results
of tomorrow' s crucial general election.
"Let us get united and participate in an appropriate democratic process. I hope tomorrow's parliament elections will be a classic example not only for our nation but also in the international domain," he said in his address to the nation over radio and television on the eve of the polls.
In his apparently last national address as head of the caretaker government at 8:30 on Sunday night, Dr Fakhruddin told the voters that the stature of their representatives and mode of development in their areas as well as overall development depend on their decision.
"You are now sitting in the chair of judge… Keep it in mind that we are going to take a decision for five years through our single day's verdict. We'll not make mistake in taking the decision, Inshallah," he said.
Fakhruddin, who took over power at a critical juncture of the nation on January 12, 2007 under the state of emergency following the 1/11 changeover amid a political crisis, urged the parties to shun malice, violence and hostile mindset in the post-election period and be copartners in the future journey.
