The Jatiya Party chief says his party will participate in the December 30 election

Deposed military dictator and Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad has said that no-one will be able to suppress him.

“We will move ahead,” Ershad told his supporters, in front of his Banani office, on Thursday afternoon.

“I am old now but they will not let me get treatment or go outside [the country]. I do not fear death,” he said, without naming anyone.

Ershad is a special envoy to the prime minister—while his party is the current opposition in Parliament. His wife is the leader of the opposition.

Even after his ouster in 1990, Ershad and his Jatiya Party have been important players in Bangladesh’s political arena.

He asked his supporters to stay with the party. “We have participated in all the elections and will take part this time, too,” he said in a short speech from his car. “Everything depends on you [the supporters]. Promise me that you will not leave the party.”
