Krishak-Sramik Janata League leader Abdul Kader Siddique has demanded resignation of Chief Election Commissioner Nurul Huda for praising former military ruler Ziaur Rahman.
Siddiqe made the demand emerging from the dialogue with the members of the Election Commission on Monday.
The CEC, during a meeting with the BNP on Sunday, said Ziaur Rahman had brought back the system for multiparty democracy in the country.
"The CEC said that Zia re-established the multiparty democracy in the country, that means someone destroyed the multiparty democracy. We do not agree with him. He (CEC) alone cannot say like that without discussing the commissioners," he said. claiming to have boycotted the dialogue for the comment.
