Former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia has been released from jail on bail today after one year of imprisonment pending trial on corruption charges.
Analysts say that the release of Khaleda Zia is a good move for the country to go back to democratic politics. In an interview with Voice of America, Professor Talukder Moniruzzaman commented on Khaleda’s release.
Professor Moniruzzaman said that this is a sign of defeat for the government for not being able to keep the two former Primer Ministers from politics.
The prominent political scientist hopes that government will now withdraw emergency and will declare schedule of election as soon as possible.
