People’s confidence in the Election Commission has become zero at present. Those who were in state power have used the Election Commission for their party’s interests, said Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader yesterday.
GM Quader, also deputy leader of the opposition in parliament, said the current system of government cannot be called democratic in any way.
He made the remarks at a meeting at the Jatiya Party chairman’s Banani office in the capital.
GM Quader in his speech said depoliticisation is going on in the country and as a result, the parties are not being able to survive.
If this continues, the people of the country will lose interest in politics and voting, he added.
