The BNP is going to hold a meeting of its national executive committee on Saturday next at the International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB).

Party's Senior Joint Secretary General Ruhul Kabir Rizvi came up with the statement while speaking at a press briefing at BNP's Nayapaltan central office on Monday.

Rizvi said the meeting is scheduled to begin at 10am at Rajdarshan Hall of the convention centre and will continue until 5pm.

He said BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir convened the meeting in consultation with party chairperson Khaleda Zia.

BNP formed its 502-member national executive committee on August 6, 2016 over four and a half months after its national council held on March 19.

As per the party's constitution, the meeting of the executive committee should be held after every three months, but it could not hold any meeting over the last one and a half years.

Meanwhile, a Special Court-5 in Dhaka on Thursday fixed February 8 to deliver on February 8 its verdict in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case filed against Khaleda and five others.

Khaleda will be disqualified for the next general election if she is convicted in the case.
