MNA National Desk: The United Nations has expressed the hope that a favourable climate will be created in Bangladesh to hold a free and fair election.
“…like in any country, this is our principal position that a climate could be created where free and fair elections could take place,” Spokesman for the Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric told reporters in a regular briefing at the UN headquarters on Friday, reported news agency.
He said they are following the situation in Bangladesh very closely. “We’ve expressed our concern.”
On Wednesday, a European Parliamentary delegation hoped that the political environment in Bangladesh will become ‘less confrontational and hostile’ in the coming months with an inclusive election in place.
The delegation urged Bangladesh authorities to facilitate the necessary conditions for an inclusive, free and fair general election.
