Inu terms Khaleda’s proposal on polls ‘absurd’
“Her proposal is illogical, impractical and unconstitutional,” he told the media at the Secretariat on Monday, three days after Khaleda put forth her 13-point suggestion. The former prime minister On Friday recommended reforming the EC and suggested the President to form a search committee to this end. She said the search body needed to engage “all major political parties” in this process. Inu said: “Khaleda’s definition of political party includes Jamaat-e-Islami, Muslim League and Freedom Party. She has insisted to come to terms with Razakars, war criminals and murderers.” Although the ruling Awami League dubbed Khaleda’s recommendations for the next general elections meaningless, political analysts said her proposals deserved consideration. About Khaleda’s proposal to empower military during the election, Inu said: “The EC has the authority to call in the military for maintaining law and order during polls, if necessary. But the military does not have judicial power. “Demanding judicial power for them is nothing but an attempt to make the armed forces controversial,” added the information minister.
