The oath-taking ceremony in Bangladesh on Nov. 18, 2013

DHAKA, Nov 18, 2013 An all-party interim government was formed today (on Nov. 18, 2013) as eight leaders of different political parties were sworn-in as new ministers and state ministers of the poll- time government to oversee the next general elections in Bangladesh.

President Abdul Hamid of Bangladesh administered the oath in presence of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Darbar Hall of Bangabhaban at 3:10 p.m.

Cabinet Secretary M Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan conducted the oath-taking ceremony.

The ministers who took oath are Awami League Advisory Council members Amir Hossain Amu and Tofail Ahmed, President of Workers party of Bangladesh Rashed Khan Menon, Jatiya Party General Secretary Ruhul Amin Howlader, and Presidium members Rowshan Ershad and Anisul Islam Mahmud.

Jatiya Party Presidium members Mujibul Haque Chunnu and Begum Salma Islam took oath as state ministers.

Former president H M Ershad, Deputy Leader of Parliament Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury, Awami League General Secretary Syed Ashraful Islam and senior Awami League leaders AMA Muhith and Matia Chowdhury, advisers to the Prime Minister and parliament members were present, among others.

The new ministers and state ministers exchanged pleasantries with the Prime Minister.

On Sunday night, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina apprised President Hamid at Bangabhaban that an all-party poll-time government would be formed to oversee the next general election, the size of which would be smaller than the existing cabinet.

Earlier in an address to the nation on October 18, Sheikh Hasina proposed to form an all- party government to oversee the 10th national election.
