In this exclusive interview with VOA Bangla Service , Dr Asif Nazrul talks about the promises and the challenges of the Upcoming government which , it is assumed , would take oath in a couple of day’s time .
Asif Nazrul sees the challenges for Awami League as their opportunities too. He says it all depends how Awami League, while running the government will take the full opportunity. He, however, adds as the expectations are large, it will also depend on expectation management. This unveils an opportunity for them and with 3/4th majority in the parliament they can go after corruptions and establish good governance .
Professor Asif Nazrul also says that the trial of War Criminals does not require any amendments in the constitution so the new government, under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina can go ahead with the trials of War Criminals.

Asif Nazrul also said that the decision to make Zillur Rahman as the next President of Bangladesh has been taken in recognition to his contributions to the party.
