The BNP-led alliance has informed the interim government and the Election Commission that it was dropping three out of its seven-point demands as pre-requisites to its participation in the upcoming elections. One of the dropped points was the insistence that the May 30 and November 7 public holidays be restored.
The November 7 public holiday was canceled last year (2007-11-29) and the upcoming elections are set for December 18, 2008, a date that we expect to be declared a public holiday in Bangladesh (2008-10-02).
