APRIL 28, 2015, We are disappointed by widespread, first-hand, and credible reports of vote-rigging, intimidation and violence that have occurred at polling stations today, and the BNP’s decision to boycott the city corporation polls. It is important that irregularities be investigated transparently and impartially, and we call on all parties involved to work within the law and avoid violence at all costs. We condemn in the strongest terms any use of violence for political objectives.
