DHAKA: Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader said he will not announce candidacy against the same post but would continue if party chief Sheikh Hasina chooses him again.
There is no problem to exit from the post, if she wants, he added.
Obaidul Quader revealed his decision in a media brief about current affairs, at the secretariat Tuesday (September 17).
He said whether he will continue as general secretary will depend on Awami League President Sheikh Hasina's will as she is the party supremo (a person in overall charge of an organization).
Quader further said he is lucky to become Awami League general secretary which is a matter of "great honor".
"I will find no objection if she changes the charge. I will welcome if any new face comes up," added the road transport & bridges minister.
However, Awami Legaue's national council is slated for December 20, 21 this year.
