The Free Press Journal - - WORLD -

DHAKA: Some po­lit­i­cal par­ties in Bangladesh, in­clud­ing the main op­po­si­tion BNP, formed an anti-gov­ern­ment al­liance on Satur­day to force the rul­ing quar­ter to form an all-party care­taker gov­ern­ment ahead of the gen­eral elec­tion in De­cem­ber, ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports.

Gono Fo­rum Pres­i­dent Ka­mal Hos­sain un­veiled the new po­lit­i­cal al­liance ‘Jatiya Oikya Front’ with former PM Khaleda Zia’s Bangladesh Na­tion­al­ist Party and two other par­ties, say­ing it was for the greater in­ter­est of the coun­try, Daily Star re­ported. “The newly-floated al­liance started its jour­ney with a vow to force the rul­ing quar­ter to re­sign from the power be­fore the an­nounce­ment of the sched­ule of the up­com­ing gen­eral elec­tion,” Ka­mal, a prom­i­nent lawyer, said at a Press meet.

An all-party ac­cept­able elec­tion­time gov­ern­ment will have to be formed af­ter the dis­so­lu­tion of the cur­rent Par­lia­ment, Ka­mal said.
