Khaleda Zia dubs new government in Bangladesh as unconstitutional, urges for talks

Dhaka, Jan 16 (ANI): Bangladesh's opposition leader, Khaleda Zia, urged the ruling Awami League party to renew talks for forming a democratic government, dubbing the present government as 'unconstitutional'. Bangladesh's new government was sworn in on January 12, a week after the ruling party won a violence-plagued election that the opposition boycotted and amid growing international calls for fresh and inclusive polls. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's Awami League ended with more than two-thirds of seats in a contest that was shunned by international observers, terming them as flawed and derided as a farce by the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP). BNP leader and Hasina's bitter rival, Khaleda Zia, said the new government was not legitimate and unconstitutional, devoid of the representation of the people. Khaleda Zia also urged the ruling party to initiate talks for setting up a fair and democratic government in the country. Jan 16, 2014
