EU urges to reform Election Commission

Natun Sokal Report : The European Union (EU) has urged the government to reform the Election Commission of Bangladesh and make it stronger and neutral as well.

Lawmaker Jean Lambert, Chair of the European Parliament Delegation related to South Asia said this in a press briefing in the capital`s Hotel Sonargaon on Friday afternoon before leaving Dhaka. Lambert was leading the delegation in Bangladesh during three-day visit.

She also urged the government to create an environment where bloggers or other free thinkers feel that their freedom of expression was `valued`.

However, she also said the European Parliament will not make any recommendations on the mechanism of overseeing general elections in Bangladesh, but it believes `the earlier the issue is discussed and agreed the better`.

“We’ll not make any recommendation. It’s something to decide by the people of Bangladesh," she said.
