Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader said no election-time government will be formed to hold the next parliamentary election.
He said: "Rather the election will be held under the supervision of the newly constituted Election Commission."
The Awami League general secretary made the statement while expressing his reaction to Khaleda Zia's speech.
While addressing today's Solidarity Day rally, Khaleda Zia said: "No fair election can be held under Sheikh Hasina-led government. The polls must be held under a neutral and non-party government."
In response, the ruling party spokesperson said: "The government cannot entertain BNP's demand as our Constitution will not allow us to form a poll-time government."
BNP has no choice but to participate in the election under the Election Commission, he added.
