Gonoforum President and also the key leader of Jatiya Oikyafront, Dr Kamal Hossain, will not be vying for the upcoming national election.

Ganoforum leader Advocate Subrata Chowdhury said this while talking to journalists today.

He said: "Dr Kamal will not participate in the upcoming general election due to his age. He is 80 years old and now he wants to work for the country."

"He will be involved with the policy making activities of the party as well as the alliance," he added.

Replying to a query over Gonoforum's coalition with Jamaat-e-Islami, he said: "All Jamaat men have joined the Awami League and we don't see any of them in our alliance."
