A senior Awami League leader has said the BNP would not be happy with the Election Commission (EC) even if ‘Allah sent down angels’.
The comment was made by Awami League Publicity Secretary Hassan Mahmud at a discussion at the Dhaka Reporters’ Unity in the capital’s Shegunbagicha on Thursday.
“The EC members were recommended by the search panel,” he said. “And still the BNP questions it. It seems the BNP would try and sniff out a political agenda even if God sent down winged angels.”
“Allah was not able to satisfy Satan, I doubt he could satisfy the BNP.”
The ruling party leader called upon the BNP to avoid a boycott and instead prepare for the upcoming elections.
The new EC is headed by former secretary KM Nurul Huda and composed of former secretary Rafiqul Islam, former additional secretary Mahbub Talukder, retired district and sessions judge Kabita Khanam and retired brigadier general Shahadat Hossain.
The EC is to be sworn in on Feb 15.
