The detained former Prime Minister and Awami League president Sheikh Hasina on Sunday said she would contest the next general elections.
Hasina, however, said that dialogue with the government could be held without her participation.
Hasina disclosed her decision as she talked with her lawyers and relations in a makeshift courtroom on the Jatiya Sangsad complex after appearing in the special judge’s court for hearing in the framing of charges in the MiG-29 corruption case.
According to her lawyers, Hasina also warned the government that the systematic movement already launched would no longer be carried out on a limited scale.
She also said that an unelected government cannot continue to be in power indefinitely.
