Yunus drops political plan7 May 2007 at 9:21 am | Posted in Muhammad Yunus, News, Sydney Peace Prize | Leave a comment
Nobel laureate and Sydney Peace Prize recipient Professor Muhammad Yunus announced last week that he is abandoning his plan to form a political party. He announced the plan for a new political party two months ago.
Yunus made his announcement in the form of an open letter. In it, he cited a lack of sustainble enthusiasm from his backers. But he said he would fully support a new political party that aims to provide a political alternative in Bangladesh.
