BNP and Awami League both party want a free, fair election manner with the participation of all political parties. But when it’s about to establish their own political method they just apart thousands of miles to each other. Government on Monday said it would not bow down to any ‘unconstitutional demand’ as it hit out at Khaleda Zia’s threats over a non-party election-time government.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday told US Senator Peter W Galbraith that her government will do everything needed to strengthen democratic institutions in the country and present to the people a national poll acceptable to all.
Khaleda Zia said on Sunday, “No formula will work out. The election has to be announced under a non-party government, not under any partisan government,”
Meanwhile, other senior members of BNP believe Awami League may talk about the interim government to win the opposition’s confidence in their last tenure. One of the advisors of Prime Minister already told them the upcoming general election can be held under an interim government as the caretaker government system does not exist because of the court’s verdict.
On the other hand opposition leader Khaleda Zia already told, “A free and fair poll as we believe the people of the country will not get chance to cast votes if it is staged under a party government,”.
