Election Commission is trying to introduce electronic voting machine in the current local election with the hope to introduce it in the national election . But the experiment drew sharp criticism from the oppostion and they will oppose any attempt to introduce it in Bangladesh election .

Chief Election Commition has said ‘EC is mulling EVM as a part of modernizing election system in Bangladesh. In many countries of the world it is in practice.’

The opposition is saying that there is scope to manipulate the result of election through EMV. A Buet professor who was behind the program also said that the result can be altered by changing the program.

But it is not rational to avoid the technology as it is in existance in many countries. If there is any loop holes in the system that should be addressed and the authenticty of the systen can be checked before the voting by the experts and observers.
