Professor Muzaffer Ahmed , Chairman of Shushashoner Jannoy Nagorik also known as Shujan, said at a press conference that the main reason for BNP’s major loss is people's protest against the previous party in power.
In an analysis of the December 29 parliamentary polls, Shujan said at least 37 percent MPs-elect of the Awami League (AL), 59 percent of the BNP and 37 percent of the Jatiya Party (JP) currently face various charges.
Shujan presented the analysis prepared on the basis of information that poll candidates had submitted to the Election Commission through affidavits.
According to the analysis, 24 of at least 54 candidates accused of corruption have been elected in the just-concluded polls, and of them 17 belong to the AL, six to the BNP and one to the JP.
