PV Desk : Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader today said there is no plan or possibility of early elections.
“I have already told that we are ready to take part in the polls whether it is held after one, three or six months later. But there is no plan or possibility of early elections,” the minister told a press conference held at the ministry’s conference room at the Secretariat in the city.
“Whenever the Elections Commission (EC) will hold the elections, we will be ready to take part in the polls. But we prefer that the polls would be held in December, the month of Victory,” the Awami League general secretary said.
Quader, categorically, also said they began preparation much earlier and already has made a draft list of candidates in district and divisional levels.
Referring to Zia Orphanage Trust and Zia Charitable Trust graft cases against Khaleda Zia, the minister said the cases were not filed by the AL government. These were filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) during the previous caretaker government’s regime, he added.
