The 14-party alliance spokesman and Awami League presidium member Mohammed Nasim on Wednesday said democracy has emerged victorious through the Khulna City Corporation (KCC) election.
"This is a victory of democracy. The pro-liberation forces have won through holding Khulna City Corporation in peaceful, neutral and credible manner," he told journalists after placing wreaths at the portrait of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at the 32 Dhanmondi Road in the city.
Nasim, also Minister for Health and Family Welfare, thanked the people of Khulna, law enforcement agencies and all concerned who were involved in the KCC polls for holding a transparent and peaceful election.
