Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim on Friday said the Awami League will have no objection if the mechanical electoral device is introduced in the next general election.
“Many countries in the world are using the electoral voting machines. If the Election Commission wants to introduce electoral device instead of ballot papers to receive votes, AL will support it,” he said.
The minister gave a speech at voluntary blood donors reception at the Jatiya Press Club in Dhaka. The program was organized by Quantum Foundation Bangladesh. It was chaired by Chief Coordinator Madam Nahar Al Bokhari.
Regarding the continuity of the constitution, Nasim informed the next parliament election will happen in a certain period under the present elected government. But whichever parties would participate in the election are their respective matters, he added.
The EC’s decision to introduce electoral voting devices were welcomed by the AL presidium member, who said, “Now people are much more conscious, no scope of vote rigging is possible at the period of digital age when the people are holding National Identity (NID) and smart card.”
Later, more than 200 crests were handed over by the minister among the blood donors who donated blood for more than 25 times.
