    Is OK to say "no objections on my part" if I don't mind doing something?

    Yes - informally.

    1) Which one sounds better "no objections on my part" or "no objections on my account"?

    2)"I wouldn't say no for an answer or I won't say no for an answer"??

    Re: no objections on my part???

    1. 'no objections on my' is incomplete and unusable as it stands.
    2. 'I wouldn't say no for an answer ' is when you are making a comment about something that may not be offered but is more of a general comment, whereas 'I won't say no for an answer' is more definite if the offer is made.

    I meant no objections on my part or on my account?

    Re: no objections on my part???

    Both are equally used, interchangeably.
