All arrangements were made to hold what would be the first presidential election to take place in such a peaceful environment.”

    “The Election Commission provided all the required facilities and directions to conduct a free and fair election, and instructions were given to the three armed forces and the police to provide the necessary security to complement them. It is our duty and responsibility as citizens to extend our full cooperation to the institutions concerned and the officer concerned in order to hold free, fair and peaceful elections.”
