BNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Saturday said Prime Minister’s remark about the election-time government is misleading as there is no provision in the current constitution to form such an administration.
Speaking at a discussion, the BNP leader further saidm “The Prime Minister in her address to the nation said an election-time government will be formed. But there’s no provision in the current Constitution for making such a government.”
“The Prime Minister mainly tried to send out a message that the election will he held under the current partisan government,” he added.
In her address to the nation on Friday, the Prime Minister said the next general election will be held as per the Constitution, and said she expects everyone will participate this time.
“In line with the constitution, the 11th parliamentary elections will be held towards the end of 2018. How the election will be held is clearly stated in our constitution,” she added.
Moudud, a BNP standing committee member, said the entire nation had an expectation that the Prime Minister would come up with clear directions to hold the next polls in a credible, neutral and expectable manner. “But she didn’t do it. The Prime Minister also did not mention anything about the dissolution of parliament before polls and deployment of army during the election.”
