Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda on Sunday said that it is disappointing for the Election Commission that some of the major political parties are not taking part in the upcoming upazila elections.

The chief election commissioner made the remarks while addressing as the chief guest at a training of trainers programme at the Election Training Institute in the capital's Agargaon.

However, Nurul Huda expressed his hope that despite nonparticipation of the parties the elections would be competitive.

The CEC urged all to act neutrally while discharging their duties during the elections.

If anyone work for any particular party or individual, the commission will be tough with them, he alerted the Election Commission officials.
