Bangladesh got the timeline of Parliamentary Election
In political point in time, the people of Bangladesh have got the timeline of Parliamentary Election and the political parties of the country have the privilege of unlocking the offices. This very great event has been occurred after a period of 16 months from the declaration of State of Emergency, which is popularly known as One/Eleven.
On 12th May, Chief Advisor (CA) of interim government gave a speech to the nation and said that from the day of his speech indoor politics would be open all over the country under a set of conditions.
As a part of the process of changing Bangladesh to a Democracy, Dialogue between the government and the political parties will be started from May 22, 2008, CA stated in his speech. He also stressed that as of the road map of Election Commission (EC), the Parliamentary Election would be held on the third week of the month December 2008.
As per the declaration of CA, the people of Bangladesh have got a definite timeline of National election, but not a dateline, which could be able to remove the confusion about holding a national election and smooth transformation of power to the elected people’s representative i.e. the politicians. CA also affirmed that for an acceptable election state of emergency would be withdrawn or relaxed in time. On Dialogue, he said, government has a good intention to prepare a National Charter on the basis of the consensus of all political parties. This Charter would be the base of governance for future Bangladesh, CA stated.
The political parties of Bangladesh have been reacted cautiously on the speech of CA. Acting President of Bangladesh Awami League (AL) Mr. Zillur Rahman said the speech made the nation frustrated. There is no reflection of the demand of AL; those were placed to the pre-dialogue Talks, which concluded very recently.
He also said to the newsmen that in the speech there is no definite indication of the withdrawal of Emergency and the release of Sheikh Hasina, president of AL. Zillur Rahman also said that as of UN Charter, organising meeting or rally is the fundamental rights of people. Presently these very rights have been allowed limitedly, it is not the full compliance to the UN Charter. This is why people are frustrated.
Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has two different opinions about the speech; as the party is yet divided into two parts, popularly known as the reformists and the Khaleda loyalists. Reformists said that this speech is the reflection of the desire of the Nation, while the Khaleda loyalists said that the speech has been failed to reflect the aspiration of nation. Though the two faction of BNP have differences in opinion, leaders of the both sides stated that BNP is going to reunite within this month.
Leftists in Bangladesh said that the speech was not able to uphold the aspiration of the nation. They said that if the government is fervent to hold a national election in this year, it is very important to total withdrawal of emergency. Otherwise it will be the reflection of a bad intention of government to control the election or election process.
The fundamentalists of the country are anyway unhappy about the speech of CA. From professionals there is no reaction yet about the speech of CA except Journalist Community. Editors, Bangladesh Federal Union of Journalists (BFUJ), National Press Club and Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) said in a joint statement that state of emergency should be withdrawn totally to stop the interference of authorities on news media. Should be mentioned that the provisions, rules and regulations of Emergency Ordinance provides the right to the state machinery to interfere on the activities of news media and there are many instance of interferences.
Now government is preparing for listing the agenda of dialogue, enacting law related to the election of local bodies and the parliament. The political parties are making them ready to press the government for there own benefit.
It is true that for the governance of a nation-state prime responsibility goes to the politicians. As institutions political parties are responsible to govern the country with the mandate of people without abusing the power. It is the desire of the Mass that the government and the political parties would not raise any unwanted issue which could jeopardize the process of democracy, the right which is not enjoyed by the people for a long time. Not a single common citizen of Bangladesh is intending to see any conflict among the interest groups, they are dreaming for a prosperous Bangladesh where rights could be enjoyed without obstacle.
