Roshan Ershad has requested Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the president of the party, not to form an alliance with Jatiya Party led by GM Quader. He made this request to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina while visiting Ganabhaban on Tuesday afternoon.
Earlier, Jatiya Party chief sponsor Roshan Ershad went to Ganabhaban to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. He went to Ganobhaban on Tuesday afternoon. His spokesperson Mamunur Rashid and his son Saad Ershad were with him at that time.
Although the Jatiya Party announced to participate in the 12th National Assembly elections, Roshan Ershad made it clear that he would not participate in the elections. It is said that he had a conversation with the Prime Minister at Ganobhaban.
Jatiya Party announced candidates for 288 seats last month. This time, Chairman GM Quader got the party’s nomination from Dhaka-17 and Rangpur-3, two constituencies of Jatiya Party founder late Hussain Muhammad Ershad.
After Ershad’s death, his son Rahgir Almahi Saad Ershad won the by-election in Rangpur-3 constituency in October 2019 and became a member of Parliament. It was assumed that this time too he will be nominated for this seat.
Mymensingh-4 seat was kept vacant for chief patron Roshan Ershad. But Roshan Ershad and Saad Ershad refused to vote for the preferred seat.
On November 15, the election commission announced the schedule of the 12th national parliament election. According to the schedule, the vote will be held on January 7.
