Bangladesh election commissioner rules out fresh vote





(The National) Bangladesh's chief election commissioner has rejected demands for a fresh vote after large numbers of complaints by opposition parties alleging that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's Awami League-led alliance rigged the ballot.


"It is not possible to hold a fresh election as the election was held in a peaceful manner," the commissioner, K M Nurul Huda, told reporters.


Ms Hasina has won a third straight term in the Sunday general election, sealing a landslide with almost all the seats in parliament, while the opposition rejected the result as rigged and called for a fresh vote.


The Grand Alliance won 288 out of 300 seats, Election Commission secretary Helaluddin Ahmed announced after the count was finished.


Ms Hasina is accused by her opponents of intimidation and the opposition disputing the outcome.


Bangladeshi people read a newspaper carrying headlines of the general election results in Dhaka.


The principles of justice define an appropriate path between dogmatism and intolerance on the one side, and a reductionism which regards religion and morality as mere preferences on the other.   - John Rawls
