Don’t end election with violence: CEC to candidates of CCC polls

Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda has said that election should start with a contest but should not end with violence.

"Life is more valuable than election. Lives must not be lost in clashes and conflicts," he said while addressing a views-exchange meeting today with election officials and law enforcement agencies centring Chattogram City Corporation election. The meeting was held at port city's Circuit House.

To CCC polls candidates, the CEC said, "Competition cannot get out of hand. Lives of some people have been lost centring election. This cannot continue."

He thanked the CCC mayor and councillor candidates for making the election "festive".

Urging election officials to treat candidates as just candidates rather than being influenced by the political party or community they belong to, the CEC said, "It is your duty to give legal assistance to all the candidates."

He called upon candidates to abide by the electoral code of conduct.
