National elections likely on Dec 27, says Muhith
The next general election may be held on December 27, finance minister AMA Muhith on Wednesday said.
"...there's a good chance for holding the upcoming national election on December 27. I've discussed with the Election Commission and they've informed me that they're proposing a date like this," he said.
The finance minister was replying to queries from reporters after Sylhet City Corporation Mayor Ariful Haque Chowdhury met him at the Secretariat, reports UNB.
"If you look at the dates in December, there remain two or three days for holding the election due to some special days like the Victory Day, Christmas and so on. So, the chance of holding the election on December 27 is huge," he further said.
Muhith also said the date can be known once the Election Commission announces the election schedule.
Asked about the election-time government, he said there will be ministers from all political parties having representation in parliament in the interim small government like the last one.
He also said there will be no representative from BNP or civil society in the government.
