Staff Correspondent: Election Commissioner (EC) Kabita Khanam said that no election is practically held 100 percent anywhere in the world.

She said, “There is no example of holding 100 percent fair polls in the world. Specially it is not possible in Bangladesh. But we want to arrange an acceptable election which will remain beyond question.”

The only female commissioner of the EC said this while speaking at a workshop held for assistant returning officers of Rajshahi, Rangpur and Khulna divisions at Nirbachan Bhaban of the capital’s Agargaon on Friday.

There is a congenial atmosphere for elections across the country and the election officials will have to perform their duties as per the directives of the EC to maintain the good environment for elections, she said.

“We want cooperation from all sides to hold a free, fair and inclusive election,” Kabita Khanam added.
