Noting that no person in the country is above irregularities and corruption, Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader said the Independent Anti-Corruption Commission can conduct investigation of any irregularities.
He said the Election Commission could investigate the irregularities in accordance with its own legal powers and authority.
Obaidul Quader said this while briefing the press in his office at the Secretariat this morning.
In the context of the complaint lodged by 42 eminent persons of the country with the President regarding the formation of the Supreme Judicial Council, the scholars think that the demand of the Supreme Judicial Council is unreasonable. "To make such a claim is to embarrass the President, the guardian of the state, the guardian of the Constitution," he said.
Obaidul Quader said those who think that the country's electoral system has been destroyed due to the Election Commission, their allegations do not prove the past experience of the election.
He said if any allegation arises against a particular person, the ACC will investigate if a person commits a particular irregularity but it is unexpected and unreasonable to blame the entire electoral system for this.
