Bangladesh National Public Perception Report Released
Dhaka, March 29, 2007 — On Thursday, March 29, 2007, the Bangladesh Election Working Group, a non-partisan 34-member coalition of civil society organizations committed to free and fair elections and governance reform, released findings from a rapid assessment of citizen perceptions of recent political events in Bangladesh. The report, conducted in all 64 districts of Bangladesh from February 3-7, 2007, was conducted with technical support from The Asia Foundation.
The National Public Perception Study Report can be accessed via download, by clicking here.
The report, the first in a series of planned public perception surveys, states that there is a broad consensus that the state of emergency proclaimed in January 2007 was necessary in view of the political crisis and lawlessness prevailing at the time in the country. It also reflects citizen perspectives on other issues such as the newly appointed Caretaker Government, public security, electoral reforms, and election timelines. It is based on 1,437 in-person interviews of Bangladeshi men and women.
A second perception survey report comparing citizen views in March 2007 with those expressed in February 2007 will be released shortly.
