A ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. McCaul has identified himself as a strong proponent of free and fair elections in Bangladesh. Previously serving as Chairman of the Congressional Homeland Security Committee, Rep. McCaul has spearheaded calls to protect democracy in Bangladesh and has actively urged the leading administration to act now to preserve free and fair elections in Bangladesh.

In the upcoming congress, as Republicans take the majority, Rep. McCaul is expected to take on a new role as Chairman of the new Congressional Foreign Affairs Committee. “I’m confident that Rep. McCaul will no doubt hold the interests of the Bangladeshi people at heart,” Saddi says. “I’m excited to see the Foreign Affairs Committee take on a bold and unswerving stance on democracy under Rep. McCaul’s leadership.”

Outspoken regarding Rohingya issues as well, Rep. McCaul recently commemorated victims of the genocide in its three-year anniversary, expressing the importance of offering assistance to the people of Bangladesh in preserving their well-being while fostering the ideals of democracy. Showing a strong voting record of supporting human rights worldwide across Europe and Asia, emphasizing a sense of accountability and fairness for people of all backgrounds, and receiving praise for drawing greater awareness of poll rigging in Bangladesh, Rep. McCaul has built a reputation as a strong ally to the Bangladeshi people.

As a retired US Army Brigadier General, Congressman Scott Perry expresses a bold nature on the floor of the US House, communicating a desire to protect democracy through comprehensive legislation, human rights of Bangladeshi religious minorities, free and fair elections, and the preservation of the Bangladeshi Community both homebound in the United States and living in Bangladesh. Saddi hopes Rep. Perry continued success in his career, as a strong candidate to serve as Chairman of the upcoming Congressional Subcommittee overseeing Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia, and Nonproliferation.

Holding military experience to inform a more hands-on approach to revitalizing the Congressional Subcommittee, Rep. Perry emphasizes special care in protecting voting rights in the Indo-Pacific region, where US presence is important when maintaining global security. “The Indo-Pacific region plays a crucial role on the world stage, likewise Rep. Perry understands how critical the role of Bangladesh is in consideration to human rights, economy, global security, and democratic governance,” Saddi says. “Through my expertise and Rep. Perry’s honed political savvy, I look forward to further collaboration in serving the interests of the United States and the people of Bangladesh to bring greater peace to the geopolitical space.”
