[RxPG] Dhaka, May 3 - Preparing for a long haul in office, till it conducts elections around end-2008, Bangladesh's interim government says it needs to appoint more advisors to cope with the workload.

The country's constitution stipulates that a caretaker government should have a chief advisor and no more than 10 advisors to perform ministerial functions. But the government has now sought views of the Law Commission on how to circumvent this and augment the strength of the council.

'The government wants to know the procedure for increasing advisors,' Law Commission chairman and former chief justice Mostafa Kamal told The Daily Star Wednesday.

'As it is a constitutional matter, we don't have any ready solution for it,' he added.

Law Advisor Mainul Hosein said more help was required to carry out the task of governance.

Over 60 ministers looked after at least 55 ministries during the previous Bangladesh Nationalist Party --led government.

The constitution states that the caretaker government should conduct elections within 90 days. But the polls were called off in January and the government of Chief Advisor Fakhruddin Ahmed completed 90 days on April 11.
