US Ambassador in Dhaka Marcia Bernicat has said her country has no favourite political party and personality in Bangladesh.

The United States just expect fair polls in Bangladesh, she said.

Bernicat was talking to reporters after attending a civil rights panel discussion session at the EMK Centre at Dhanmondi area of Dhaka.

"We hope to see election is fairly run and run well. We like other embassies are meeting different political parties, mainly major two parties, to better understand the election condition here," the envoy said.

The public affairs section of the US Embassy in Dhaka and the EMK Centre jointly organised the programme, according to UNB.

Noting that what they care about is the process, the US envoy said, "We both are democratic parties. We have democratic rules and the fundamental basic of democracy is people who have the right to choose and change their government.

"So for us, it's a matter of process. If the process is truly representative and fair, then you have the basis for stability," the envoy added.
