Election Commissioner Mahbub Talukdar said this election is to uphold our self-respect. The election is to stand high in the world. So we couldn’t lose our dignity holding a questionable election.

EC said this while he was delivering in the training session of the trainers in Election Commission Bhaban at Agargaon on Monday morning.

“Presiding officers perform the main responsibility in the election. They are the main operators of the polling center. So you are the developers to create new operators. That’s why you all will remain aware of polling officers’ rolls and polling process including constitution practice, providing the necessary knowledge, and a clear conception. If you become failure the election will fail too. If you succeed, the success of the whole nation will be revealed,” Mahbub Talukdar said for the trainee.

He said, “The people of Bangladesh will write a golden chapter of history on 30 December. You have to play a great responsibility in this crisis time of the nation. Your contribution will be a pride in the history of the nation through a fair election. We are not just countrymen but in front of the world's surveillance. All the people are monitoring every activity of each of us and every step closely.”

EC also urges trainers to maintain legal rules in the election as well as keep impartiality.
