Dhaka, April 2 (bdnews24.com)—Institutional reforms are more important for Bangladesh than removing some people from their posts, said outgoing British high commissioner Anwar Choudhury Wednesday.

Emerging from a meeting with home adviser MA Matin, Choudhury said Bangladesh had moved to replace "some people". But important institutions should be made stronger which is more important to strengthen democracy, the UK envoy said.

Choudhury also stressed further reforms to the public administration and, in particular, the Public Service Commission. The UK envoy suggested that the next government should follow up on the anticorruption drive.

He hoped the polls would be held by year-end in line with a roadmap laid down by the Election Commission. Choudhury, who grabbed frequent headlines for his public speeches on politics in Bangladesh, will end his four-year assignment in Dhaka in June.
