Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said that the election of Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCCC) was very good.

He said this at a press briefing at Awami League president's political office in Dhanmondi on Friday morning.

He said politics is like tides. We are today but cannot stay tomorrow. A political party should not have any ambition to live forever in power.

Obaidul Quader said, the way the BNP started boycotting election one after one, their condition will get worse in the next general election. Moving away from the election is not a democratic path. However, BNP did not participate in the election, but activists took part. Although the participants were expelled, the field workers are not stopped.

Responding to a question, Quader said, the BNP participates the election assuming the benefits. Earlier, they participated in the city corporation elections. Then four of them won. So that was not a matter of worry.

He said that due to the holiday on the day of polls, many people went home, a big party did not participate, and rain from the beginning of the day, on top of this it is a by-election. In all, the presence of the voters was low. But Sadek Hossain Khoka was elected mayor with 10 percent votes in 2001. There is much more attendance than this now.

Meanwhile, the office secretary said. Abdus Sobhan Golap and central executive committee member SM Kamal Hossain were also present.
