DHAKA, Jan 26, 2017 (BSS) - Awami League Presidium Member and Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammad Nasim said today the BNP should show positive attitude towards the search committee aimed at forming the next Election Commission (EC).
"The members of the search committee are respected personalities of the society. So, the remarks over its neutrality made by BNP Secretary General Fakhrul Islam Alamgir are not correct," he said while paying a visit to the ENT Hospital at Tejgaon here.
"The President has formed the search committee in accordance with the power bestowed upon him by the Constitution. The committee will only suggest names for formation of the election commission," he added.
Political parties should wait until formation of the EC instead of making comments, he suggested.
"Judges do not do politics for any political party. Does any teacher do politics? They are in different professions for their own quality. They are well known to the people," he said.
