Describing the ongoing dialogue on the reconstitution of the Election Commission (EC) as ‘pointless’, BNP standing committee has decided not to take part in the talks with President Abdul Hamid.
A meeting of the party standing committee, the highest policymaking body, on Monday took the decision, said a press release signed by BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Wednesday.
Amid the various speculations about BNP’s participation in the talks, the party made its stance clear on it even before receiving the invitation from Bangabhaban for joining the dialogue.
Earlier, Fakhrul said their standing committee will make a decision on it once they get an invitation from the President.
He said their meeting elaborately discussed the issue of the President’s dialogue with the registered political parties on the formation of the new EC.
