‘Current situation not conducive to fair elections’

Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Monday said a fair election seems not possible in the current situation of the country, reports UNB.

“It’s the government that should take initiatives to improve the election situation. We’ll discuss it in the party forum and give a proposal on behalf of the Jatiya Party if the government wants,” he said.

Quader, also the deputy opposition leader in Parliament, came up with the remarks while talking to reporters at the Jatiya Party Chairman's Banani office.

He said that the current government has lost the trust of the people as it has been in power for a long time while the common people also do not like BNP.

In this situation, the Jatiya Party Chief said the country’s people want to see a third force apart from Awami League and BNP.

“The Jatiya Party is preparing to emerge in the elections as the third force. The Jatiya Party is preparing for the elections in 300 seats,” he said.

Quader said their party is doing politics to remove corruption, misrule, tender manipulation, politicisation, extortion, terrorism and anarchy from the country.

“The country’s people think that Jatiya Party has achieved much more success in running the country than Awami League and BNP. So, the people of the country want to see the Jatiya Party as an alternative force,” he said.

Replying to a question, the Jatiya Party chief said, “We respect the court and we obey all directives of the court.”

He said the Jatiya Party leaders and workers and the common people of the country are happy with the High Court order clearing the way for the Jatiya Party chairman to perform the party duties.
