Int’l community has no question about Jan 5 polls: PM


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday said the international community has no question about Bangladesh’s January 5 parliamentary polls.

Hasina said this in response to a question during a press briefing at Ganabhaban about her recent Italy tour attending the 10th summit of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM).

Sought comments on the criticisms over the January-5 polls both by a section of people and foreign diplomats, she said during her visit to Milan, heads of government from different countries whose envoys in Bangladesh are raising questions about the election congratulated her for returning to power for the second consecutive time.

Many have termed the government uncontested and illegal one, while many are about to lodge a case against it, but there is no question against it at the international level, Hasina said.

Despite such allegations, the Prime Minister said, the Speaker and a member of the 10the parliament have been elected to two prestigious posts of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).
