The polls-time government will be formed in the middle of October, said Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Qauder on Tuesday.
He said he had a discussion on this with the Prime Minister.
Talking to journalists at Secretariat, Obaidul Quader said the size of the government will be like the one formed in last time and there will be no technocrat in the small-size cabinet.
He claimed that Ershad's Jatiya Party has requested to add one or more leaders of JP to the poll-time government and the Prime Minister will consider the matter, UNB reports.
Quader, also the Road Transport and Bridges Minister, said that the party's nomination for the national election will be finalised next month.
He said the Prime Minister has given 'hint' to 60 to 70 leaders for taking preparation as they might get nomination.
In another query of reporters how many seats will be given to the alliance parties in the next elections, Obaidul Quader said, it could be 60 to 70.
He also said that Jatiya Party has declared that if the BNP does not come to the polls, the Jatiya Party will compete without alliance. If BNP joins the fray, JP will form alliance.
BNP is trying to create issue over its Chairperson Khaleda Zia's illness. She needs better treatment and it is possible at BSMMU as the hospital is specialized, said the AL leader.
"BNP couldn't do anything in last ten years and it will not be possible do anything also in next two months," said Quader.
He warned to local leaders not to involve in any ill competition centring national election as AL is now more united and well-organized than any time before.
