UN reiterates hope for ‘free, fair and credible’ election in Bangladesh

Diplomatic Correspondent

The United Nations has reiterated its hope for "free, fair and credible elections" in Bangladesh.

"I haven't seen the letter, and I would just refer you to what I've already said extensively on the elections in Bangladesh and our hopes for a free, fair, and credible election," Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, told reporters during a regular briefing on December 8.

Earlier in November, Bangladesh conveyed to the United Nations that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is "determined to hold a free and fair election" but will not tolerate the burning of public and private properties and human lives in the name of demonstration that the opposition frequently perpetrates.

"In the context of undue, unwarranted and vested political pressure that we are facing from different comers ahead of our upcoming National Parliamentary Election, we hope that the United Nations system, including its Secretariat, agencies and country office, would play a constructive and collaborative role to assist Bangladesh to remain persistent in its development trajectory," Foreign Minister AK Abdul Momen wrote in his letter to the UN.

The letter was written on November 19 and the Permanent Mission of Bangladesh to the UN transmitted it to the UN on November 20.
