He said although some incidents of violence occurred in separate places during the polls, even then it held peacefully, adding, the voter’s participation was satisfactory.
Referring to the sincerity of the voters, he said that even disabled persons and pregnant women were seen exercising their franchise in this polls.
“To complete this election peacefully was a big challenge before the nation,” he said, adding that, it has been completed with enormous support of the countrymen under the Election Commission.
Praising Awami League President Sheikh Hasina, he also said that Sheikh Hasina has opened the path of conducting an inclusive election within just a one week by holding a meaningful dialogue with all the political parties of the country.
