Upazilla Elections : Phase 3-Violence marred polls March 20, 2014

The 3rd phase of upazilla election has been completed in 95 upazillas on 15th March 2014 among violence, chase and counter chase, vote rigging , box stuffing, deaths .

In Print and Electronic Media the violence flushed the headlines.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

The result shows pro-government party AL leads a little better than opposition. The controversial Jamaat could however managed a sizable amount of seats in continuity that is proportional to their earlier record.[1]
In the vice chairman post, BNP bags more seat than AL and Jamaat also bags some seats in the category. [2] [3]

Election commission is criticized for its non-effective role in taking appropriate actions against violence before and after the polls.

The government also to some extent  lost credibility of holding neutral election in its tenure.

People are predicting no respite from violence in the coming polls.

All these started with the publication of an article by Mizanur Rahman Khan,an eminent journalist in the Prothom Alo on practice of bail by the higher court in Bangladesh. The Higher court takes the matter differently and summoned the editor of Prothom Alo and the writer to the court[1][2][3] and the virdict on the case will be declared on 13th instant[1][3].

Opinion of some lawyers also creates controversy on the issue[1]. Some press condemned the opinion and in turn accused of contempt of court themselves. But they were all cleared of contempt of the court.

The media expresses concern on the freedom of press in Bangladesh.
