Opposition Candidates Pull out of Bangladesh Election Citing Vote Rigging
30 December 2018, 15:46
Nearly 287 candidates had contested the election from the opposition group led by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party.
Bangladesh’s Election Commission told Reuters it was investigating allegations of vote rigging coming from across the country.
A source in the opposition said many candidates pulled out individually but that the group’s final decision would be
announced later in the day. Vote counting has already begun and results are expected to be clear by Monday morning.
