Head of Bangladesh Interim Government Pledges Elections "As Soon As Possible"


The head of Bangladesh's interim government has pledged to hold elections "as soon as possible," but has not given a date.

Fakhruddin Ahmed made the statement in a speech on Bangladesh state television Sunday. It was his first address to the country since taking power on January 12th.

He promised the elections would be "free, fair and meaningful."

Elections in Bangladesh were originally scheduled for January 22nd. However, they were canceled after a series of sometimes violent protests by a coalition of opposition parties who said votes were rigged by the former ruling party.

Zahurul Alam has more on the story.
