Nobel Peace Laureate Muhammad Yunus is warning Bangladeshi political parties that their sometimes violent feuding could jeopardize the country's fledgling economic growth.
Yunus is the founder of micro-loan financier Grameen Bank. He called on politicians to form a coalition government to solve their disputes. He also recommended creating new voter lists and voter ID cards for a new election.
An alliance of 14 opposition parties has been leading sometimes violent protests for the past month to demand new election officials and reforms.
The group argues that current officials could rig upcoming national elections.
Matiur Rahman Choudhury has more on the story.
