Mahbub Talukdar’s 5 recommendations:
1. Army deployed by voting: 26 parties in the dialogue of EC held the position against the army and three teams. After independence, army has been deployed in all the elections but as a striking force. Although they are deployed in the polls, it is important to show them how to carry out their duties. In addition, after the removal of the army from the definition of law and order, it should be determined how their functioning will be.
2. Participative election: In the tenth parliamentary elections, there are 153 seats to be elected uncontested. This election also excluded a party. However, the current opposition party has taken part in the cabinet along with the government. In this situation, questions have been raised about how a party is in the government and the opposition. In the present situation, difficult issues can be solved through bilateral discussions with political parties.
3. Neutrality in the selection: Creating a voting level playing field prepares the pre-election. The opposition party can not enjoy the advantage that the ruling party enjoys in political activities. Peaceful political programs are being blocked. Complaint is being questioned by the opposition’s committee and the level playing field is being questioned by filing a lawsuit against the accused. In this situation, before the announcement of schedule, EC may draw attention of the government through affirmative statement.
4. Increasing capacity of the EC: Many people are asked to put the Public and Home Ministry under the EC during the election. If the responsibility of these two ministries is entrusted to the EC, the confidence of the people will increase and it will be helpful in free, fair, neutral and acceptable elections.
5. Talking with the government: If these proposals are applicable, then EC should dialogue with the government before declaring the schedule. Before that on August 30, the meeting of the commission had decided to amend the Representation of the People Order for the use of EVMs in the parliamentary elections; Mahbub Talkooda came out with objection to it.
