>BNP flip-flops on registration

>ALMOST like an intriguing soap opera, BNP kept everybody in suspense last night regarding whether it will get registered with the Election Commission (EC) under the new electoral provisions, following an unscheduled meeting with the commission in the afternoon. (Full report)
A four-member BNP delegation held a two-hour meeting with the EC in the afternoon and announced at 4:00pm that the party would get registered and contest in December 18 parliamentary poll. 
But three hours later Vice-president MK Anwar, who had broken the good news to the media, made a somersault claiming the earlier announcement had been his personal opinion, not a party decision. 
Just before MK Anwar’s recantation, at a ceremony marking the founding anniversary of the Daily Amar Desh, BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain claimed what MK Anwar had told reporters earlier had been his personal opinion. 
Party insiders said, MK Anwar was forced to withdraw his earlier statement under pressure from BNP’s partners in the four-party alliance, especially from Jamaat.
