Voters be given chance to express choice: EU

WT24 Desk
The European Union (EU) has said voters in Bangladesh must be given the opportunity to express freely their democratic choice.  “In the run up to the vote for the mayoral elections in Dhaka and Chittagong, all sides must refrain from any actions that could spark further violence in Bangladesh,” said the EU Spokesperson in a statement on Saturday.  It said they look to political leaders to create favourable conditions for peaceful, inclusive, transparent and credible elections to take place.

All political actors in Bangladesh should take concrete steps to end violence, de-escalate tensions and engage in a constructive manner, for the long-term stability and democratic development of Bangladesh, it added.
