An economy for everybody

No matter who wins, the success of our democracy will be reliant on both parties working together

Both the Awami League and BNP’s respective manifestos reveal that each party will be focusing on different aspects of the economy if either of them is to be elected.

But it is also encouraging to see that, at the end of the day, both parties are working towards improving the lives of the people who have worked so hard to ensure that Bangladesh continues to thrive. 

For example, while both party’s manifestos have pledged to raise the national GDP, the Awami League has promised to reduce overall poverty and increase per capita income while the opposition has focused on agriculture and increase the minimum wage for RMG workers to Tk12,000.

While there are certain flaws with the manifestos, what this reveals, at the end of the day, is that both parties wish to bridge the gap between the rich and poor and ensure that every single Bangladeshi receives the benefits economic progress has to offer.

What is important, however, is that both parties carry through with their promises and live up to the trust placed on them by the voters. 

And no matter who wins, the success of our democracy will be reliant on both parties working together for the betterment of the nation.

Good governance is key to implementation, and this election should not act as a barrier to all the progress Bangladesh has made over the last decade. 

As we have said earlier, the election manifestos reflect political maturity on the part of both parties, and are essential towards providing people with the clarity of vision required to make their choices when the elections are held on December 30.
