Caretaker is the only formula: Khaleda


BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia on Tuesday responded to the government's proposal for talks, saying the discussion has to be on a non-party polls-time government's outline.

“Our demand is clear; the government's formula on the next election won't work. No election can be held under their supervision,” she told a discussion.

“Our formula is clear, too. The next election will have to be held under the supervision of an impartial non-party government.

“That government's tenure will have to be 90 days and it will have to comprise an impartial chief and 10 impartial advisors,” the opposition chief added.

“To make this happen, table a bill on a non-party government in Parliament immediately.”

“We all may make an outline of the non-party government through discussion, if it is necessary,” she added.

Earlier in the day, BNP Standing Committee Member Tariqul Islam said the party was ready for talks anytime.

Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam on Monday said, “The only way to reach a solution is through dialogue. No other alternative is available.”

“The sooner the dialogue takes place and an agreement is reached, the better for the country and its democracy,” he added.
