‘BNP will harm more to itself than to the country if it does not participate in the election’ November 19, 2008Posted by bdoza in BANGLADESH, ELECTION, GOVERNANCE, POLITICS.

The quote is from Dr. Akbar Ali Khan, an ex adviser of the past caretaker government.
The date of election remain unchanged on 18th December 2008 as the consensus couldn’t be achieved among the major political parties regarding shifting of the election date. The option of the CEC to shift the date from 18th to 28th December 2008 was not accepted. With this the ultimatum of Khaleda Zia to accept their 4 point demands is over.
AL retaliated that they are ready for election on 18th and their party is busy to select the nominations of the candidates for different constituencies. It is time to see how BNP react to the situation arises with the loss of the last hope of accepting their demands.
Khondoker Delwar Hussain, Genaral Secretary of BNP condemned the government decision to hold the election one way without taking into cognizance of the demands of BNP. He said that BNP wants to be in the election but government does not want it to be. He, however, said that BNP will seat with its alliance tomorrow and come into the decision regarding the participation in the election.
The ordinary citizen/s will be happy if BNP come to the election and participate in it with full vigour.
There are difference between 1/22 & 12/18. In 1/22 people were not ready for a general election and the situation is totally reverse now. People are ready for an election to have a leap to democracy and they are waiting how the parties behave.
It will be wise for BNP and its allies to participate in the election even though many of their demands are not fulfilled.
An ordinary citizen
