BNP discusses election issues with US envoy

Fakhrul hands the diplomat video clips of 'vote fraud'

A three-member BNP delegation, led by its Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, yesterday met US Ambassador to Bangladesh Earl R Miller and discussed various issues relating to Sunday's national election.

The one and a half hours meeting that began at 10:00am was held at the US envoy's residence.

The two other BNP team members are BNP Standing Committee member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury and Executive Committee member Tabith Awal.

There was no briefing from either side about the meeting.

A BNP leader close to Fakhrul said the BNP delegation informed the US envoy about their party's observations over the election and various “irregularities”.

He said the BNP team also provided Miller with documents, including paper cuttings and video clips, on “election irregularities and vote fraud”.

The BNP and its alliance partners faced a serious debacle in Sunday's general election as they got only seven seats out of 298.
