As far as I know if he has any biasness towards any party (which is normal and nothing wrong about it unless he abuses it), then its more towards BNP than any party. Moreover its BNP who offered him the BD Bank Governor job.
Then why BNP boycotted the ceremony? I am pretty sure its not because of Fakhruddin as a candidate (CA), but rather showing that they are not happy with the current development i.e resignation of Iajuddin, delaying the elections, future revamping the EC and voter list.
So on paper AL is supporting the nomination and BNP is kind of non-commital. Again, I think BNP is one step ahead of AL. So if anyone dances again, I think it will be AL who may end up dancing in the street again; only that next time they will have far less credibility to sell it to the foreign governments/institutes.
btw:the rumor (from dristipat) is Prof U was first offered, but he had some precondition demand that Iajuddin government didn't satisfied. So he rejected.
