E-Vote for Bangladesh

Encouraged by the success of e-voting in Indian general election, Saifur Rahman, the finance minister of Bangladesh has rightly said that all political parties and civil society members should unite in favor of introducing electronic voting system in Bangladesh. It will ensure a smooth, sharp and reliable electoral system.

He points out to a burning truth:

"Our politicians maintain a culture that indulges raising indiscriminate allegations of rigging when defeated in the poll"

I hope that the government gets itself equipped with the e-vote system before the next election.
