Election will be held on time: Quader

The national election in Bangladesh will be held on time following the Constitution, a top office-bearer of the ruling Awami League has said.

“The nation election will not be held under a neutral government but under the country’s neutral Election Commission,” AL general secretary Obaidul Quader told reporters in Feni on Thursday night.

“The Election Commission of Bangladesh will be in charge of all the ministries during the poll period,” he asserted.

During his interaction with the media, the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, however, raised questions over the top leadership of the BNP. “Who is their leader? If the BNP comes to power, who will head the government?”

“The Constitution of Bangladesh is praised throughout the world. So, why should the government complain to foreign diplomats for persuading BNP to fight the election? Anyway, it will be held on time as per the Constitution,” he added.
