He was addressing a press conference at BNP Chairperson's Gulshan office in the capital.
He said: "We do not want to comment on what this government is doing or not doing."
The ruling Awami League nominated Md Shahabuddin Chuppu as the 22nd president of Bangladesh on Sunday.
The Awami League Parliamentary Party had nominated Shahabuddin Chuppu, a former commissioner of the Anti-Corruption Commission, a retired district and sessions judge, and a freedom fighter, to run for president, General Secretary Obaidul Quader told the media on Sunday.
Sunday was the last day for the submission of nominations, and Shahabuddin became the president-elect by default at 4pm as no other party had picked a candidate for the election.
