Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader has said the election-time government will be formed with members of the political parties the currently have representatives in the parliament.
"The size of the election-time government will be small like the previous one...And the formation of this government is totally under the jurisdiction of the prime minister," he said while talking to the journalists at his Secretariat office in Dhaka on Wednesday.
Quader, also the Awami League general secretary, said the next general election would be held in due time and there was no possibility of the prime minister's resignation before the polls.
BNP was now a self-declared corrupt party, he said, adding: "It is their (BNP) matter whether they will take part in the polls or not."
The next election would be held as per the electoral procedures and it would not halt for anyone, Quader said.
He said the government would assist the Election Commission in holding the polls.
