JS Should be Made more Effective : EU  Delegation Feels - 2004-05-06


The Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Bangladesh on Thursday said the Jatiya Sangsad should be made more effective as 'the pivotal institution in this democracy', adding confrontational and violent politics was no solution to the problems facing the nation. "Any opposition can tell anything to the government, nobody should stop voicing their concern, but there are rules and procedures of the game," said Sjef Ijermans, ambassador of the Netherlands.

Ijermans, who also acts as the president of the EU in Dhaka, was speaking at a Meet the Reporters session on 'Bangladesh-EU Relations' ahead of Europe Day under the auspices of Dhaka Reporters Unity (DRU) at its office.

"Parliament is the central institution to go to (in a democracy)," Ijermans added, urging politicians to make the Jatiya Sangsad more effective.
