AL starts talks with 14-party components tomorrow
Awami League (AL) starts tomorrow its meetings with the components of the 14-party alliance and other like-minded parties to take a common stance at the Election Commission dialogue.
As part of the plan, AL will first sit with the Workers' Party of Bangladesh tomorrow at the Gulshan residence of AL Acting President Zillur Rahman.
The party will also meet Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB) and other progressive political parties outside the coalition.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, AL leader Tofail Ahmed said that they will hold discussion with their 14-party allies so that they can take a common stance while placing electoral reform proposals at the EC. Tofail, however, said that he could not speculate on the coalition's future at the moment.
AL will also meet Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD-Inu) on October 1 and sit with the Sammyabadi Dal on October 3.
Similar meetings will also be held with the Ganotantri Party, National Awami Party (NAP-Muzaffer) and other components of the coalition, but the meeting dates have not been fixed yet.
AL presidium on September 21 assigned Tofail Ahmed to maintain contact with the leaders of the components of the coalition.
