Read the writing on the wall
With its latest 'people's opinion survey,' the result of which was published in the Prothom Alo, this is the sixth such survey conducted by the ORG Quest Ltd during this Awami League government. The survey shows that if the general national election is held now, BNP will bag 50.3% of the votes against 43.7% going to AL. During this survey held in September, general people's opinion was taken also on other areas such as nonpartisan election-time government (yes 82%), how the nation is being led (right direction, yes- 40%), overall satisfaction about the government (yes- 43%) etc.
The overall survey results show a dismal picture and indicate failures of the present AL government in all aspects. This has also brought to light why the AL government's stance on the national election under a CTG is so hard to accept.
The anti-incumbency factor has a clear influence on the opinion poll. AL government must realise the hard truth, read the writing on the wall, bow to the people's will and thus save the nation from the fearful situation.
