Allegations placed by 42 eminent citizens are fabricated: CEC

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda has claimed that the allegations placed by 42 eminent citizens against the Election Commission (EC) to the President in recent times are fabricated.

Denying the allegations against the EC, the CEC at a press conference at the office of the EC at Agargaon in the capital on Thursday cleared the stance of the Commission.

Eminent citizens, in a letter to President Md Abdul Hamid on December 14, stated that members of the EC, under the leadership of KM Nurul Huda, have committed misconduct and irregularities, including spending Tk 2 crore for delivering speeches as “special speakers” and Tk 8.08 crore in recruiting staffers for the Commission.

The letter also mentioned that the EC has committed gross misconduct and irregularities in purchasing and using the electronic voting machines, and in holding the 11th parliamentary election, and also elections to Dhaka North and South city corporations, and Khulna, Gazipur, Sylhet, Barishal and Rajshahi city corporations.
