No global leader raised question on election: PM Hasina


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday said no global leader raised any concern and question about last month's general election during her recent visit to Germany.

“No one said anything about the election. They don’t have any concern and question regarding the election,” she said, replying to a question at a press conference in her official residence Ganabhaban.

The press conference was organised to tell about the outcomes of her recent visit to Germany to attend the Munich Security Conference-2024.

The prime minister said bilateral issues dominated the agenda of her meetings with global leaders, held on the sidelines of the conference.

“None told me anything about the election as they knew that I would come back winning the election,” she said.

Not naming anyone, she said there is a country where the election is called free and fair despite it takes 12-13 days to declare the poll results.

How come! In Bangladesh, the election is not free despite its results announced within 24 hours (of the balloting), she said.

The prime minister went to Munich on February 15 and returned home on February 19.

During her stay in Munich,  Hasina attended the Munich Security Conference and held meetings with global leaders on the sidelines.
