>AL sets sights to woo new voters

>THE Awami League sought to woo young and first-time voters in the election manifesto party chief Sheikh Hasina rolled out on Friday morning, promising to build a bright future for the new generation. (Read bdnews24.com report)
“We dedicate our Vision-2021 to the young generation, who are enrolled as voters this year for the first time, with the aim of building a bright future for them,” Hasina said in the Charter for Change 2008, that describes her targets for a ‘Vision 2021’.
By some estimates, the voter roll includes 30 percent new voters this year, while some 50 percent are classed as ‘young voters’.
Hasina said her party wanted “to utilise the immense potentials of our new generation of voters” to prepare the nation to face the challenges of globalisation in this 21st century.
“We have formulated our Election Manifesto and work programme for them,” she pointed out in her address at the Dhaka Sheraton Hotel.
“We believe the successful implementation of this work programme and Vision 2021 depends on the active participation and involvement of our young generations in the process.”
