BNP’s electoral manifesto to be announced tomorrow

BNP will publish its electoral manifesto for the 11th parliamentary election on Tuesday (tomorrow).

The manifesto will be announced at a press conference to be held at Lakeshore Hotel in capital’s Gulshan on the day, BNP media wing member Shayrul Kabir Khan confirmed the news.

The party insiders said that BNP is set to propose a comprehensive guideline in the manifesto to transform Bangladesh into a higher middle-income country by an innovative formula, “Vision 2030.”

In May last year, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia outlined her party's Vision 2030, pledging to bring constitutional reforms to create a balance of power.

Jatiya Oikyafront, a newly formed political alliance, however, will publish its electoral manifesto for the 11th general election today.

The manifesto will be announced at a press conference to be held at Hotel Purbani in the capital, the alliance sources have confirmed.

The coalition, led by Gono Forum President Dr Kamal Hossain and comprising BNP, was floated in October and has now become a major opposition in the country’s politics.

The alliance insiders also said the manifesto may focus on corruption-free development, education, health and employment.

Earlier this month, the alliance announced that it has finalized the draft manifesto—focusing on issues including education, health care, the judiciary, freedom of speech, and public security.

BNP, Jatiya Oikya Prokriya and Jukta Front have recently launched a new opposition alliance, ‘Jatiya Oikyafront’, ahead of the 11th national election slated to be held on December 30 without Bikalpadhara Bangladesh President AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury.

Earlier, Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad has declared an 18-point electoral manifesto on ‘good governance and development of the nation.
