Want a fair and acceptable election: EC Ahsan Habib

After taking our oath, thousands of people have sincerely cooperated with the Returning Officer by maintaining 100% neutrality in the elections. As a result of which every election has been fair and acceptable without any kind of violence in a festive atmosphere. My heartfelt gratitude and thanks to all. I sincerely believe that such trend will be maintained in the upcoming 12th National Assembly elections.
