Bangladesh's new chief advisor to the interim administration has appointed five advisors, setting the stage for national elections.
The appointments complete interim leader Fakhruddin Ahmed's cabinet of 10 members.
Ahmed was himself appointed last week after weeks of opposition protests forced the resignation of the former leader of the caretaker government, Iajuddin Ahmed, who still retains the ceremonial post of president.
Elections set for January 22 was also postponed amid the crisis that saw demonstrations led by an alliance of opposition parties disrupt the capital, Dhaka. A new date has not yet been announced.
The demonstrators, organized by the opposition Awami Alliance, had accused the previous caretaker chief of favoring the former ruling party, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party.
