Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has suffered  a split as a group of its leaders announced a seven-member coordination committee dropping its President Oli Ahmad.

Party’s former joint secretary general Shahdat Hossain Selim came up with the announcement at a press conference at the National Press Club on Monday, reports UNB.

Former whip of Parliament and LDP presidium member Abdul Karim Abbasi has been made president of the new committee, with Selim as its member secretary.

“Now it is not possible to do politics with Oli Ahmed. That is why we have formed a seven-member coordination committee led by Abdul Karim Abbasi. I have been made its member secretary,” said Selim.

He said the coordination committee will work out the next course of action through discussions with other party leaders and activists.

On October 9, Oli Ahmed formed a 203-member new committee of LDP dropping Abbasi and Selim.

Abbsi was the presidium member while Selim was joint secretary general in the party’s previous committee.

On October 26, 2006, Oli left BNP and formed LDP together with then Bikalpa Dhara Bangladesh (BDB) President Dr AQM Badruddoza Chowdhury.

However, B Chowdhury quit LDP within a year and revived his party BDB following a conflict with Oli.
