A [Bangladesh Nationalist Party] BNP policymaker has said they will not take part in elections if the government introduces e-voting, as it will be ‘a tool of vote rigging’.
“We won’t accept e-voting and take part in elections. Elections must be held under the existing voting system,” Moudud Ahmed said at a human chain programme at the South Plaza of the parliament building on Saturday morning.
The government plans to introduce e-voting to check irregularities and scope of vote rigging.
… “Ruling Awami League is plotting conspiracies for manipulating vote, because AL will be defeated in the polls,” he said adding, “e-voting method is a great tool for manipulation. It is possible to declare someone a loser or winner by using this method.”
Moudud also claimed that this method is not followed even in developed countries like the UK, the USA, France and India. “Manipulation is possible through installing a programme in this method. People’s verdict does not reflect through this method of polls.”
