Yunus to enter politics15 February 2007 at 4:40 am | Posted in News | Leave a comment
Professor Muhammad Yunus has recently announced his decision to enter politics. He will quit his position at the Grameen Bank and is considering the possibility of establishing his own political party.
In early February, the Nobel Laureate and 1998 Sydney Peace Prize recipient wrote an open letter to the people of Bangladesh, seeking their opinion on his plan to establish a political party.
Professor Yunus has ruled out the possibility of joining other political parties. Instead, he would run for the next election as an independent candidate should the plan for his own political party fails.
