As the nation goes to a much-awaited parliamentary election on Dec. 29, a vast majority of voters said they are satisfied with the poll preparation, leading English newspaper The Daily Star reported Wednesday quoting an opinion poll.

The opinion poll, carried out by The Daily Star and Nielsen, revealed that some 88 percent respondents covered in the survey are satisfied with the role of the country's Election Commission in preparing for election.

Meanwhile, a thumping 95 percent of respondents are confident that they can cast vote without coercion this time and 98 percent said election environment and procedures have improved than before.

The majority of the respondents said honesty, capability and education of the candidates will determine their voting decisions, the survey showed.

The Daily Star-Nielsen Election Opinion Poll was conducted on 5,040 voters in 90 constituencies of 44 out of total 64 districts. The respondents included equal numbers of males and females living in six divisions across the country.

Bangladesh's ninth parliamentary elections, which was postponed about two years ago due to political turmoil over electoral issues, will be held on Dec. 29. More than 1,500 candidates are contesting for 300 seats of the ninth parliament.

The number of voters are over 81 million, of which 50.9 percent are females.
