Chief Election Commissioner KM Nurul Huda described the overall voting situation across the country as good except some stray incidents.
The CEC made the remark while talking to journalists after casting his votes at IES High School and College polling station at Uttara on Sunday morning.
‘Voting continues peacefully except some stray incidents in a few centres in Chattogram and Noakhali,’ said the CEC.
Nurul Huda cast his vote at IES School and College centre in Uttara’s Sector 5 at 11:15am.
Responding to a question, the CEC said the election officials and law enforcers were given orders to suspend voting if any centre faced any trouble.
About the absence of polling agents at some centres, he said the EC had
nothing to do about it because appointing polling agents was the responsibility of the candidates contesting the polls.
