DHAKA: Commerce Minister Tofail Ahmed said the present government will act as the polls-time government.

In response to a question about the polls-time government, he said, “Current government is the polls-time government. However, the size of the government will be determined by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.”

“New cabinet will be formed in the last week of this month or first week of November,” he said.
