Sheikh Hasina is expected to hold office for a fifth term because the Bangladesh Nationalist Party chose not to participate in the elections.

Live updates on the election in Bangladesh: The main opposition, the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), led by Khaleda Zia, is expected to boycott the elections, handing Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and her party the opportunity to win a fourth consecutive and fifth term in office.

According to PTI, the ruling Awami League has secured 200 seats in the 300-seat Parliament, while counting is still ongoing.

On Sunday, January 7, the polls in Bangladesh officially ended at 4 p.m. local time (3:30 p.m. IST), with a pitiful 40 percent of voters casting ballots.

The Quint was informed by sources in Dhaka that although the voting process started peacefully, there have been some violent events recorded in various parts of the nation. There have been allegations of altercations between BNP activists and in Chandgaon, Chattagram (formerly Chittagong).

A few media sites, meanwhile, reported on violent occurrences and ballot stuffing, including one in which two people were shot following a fight.

The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), led by former prime minister Khaleda Zia, has abstained from the polls in protest of Hasina’s refusal to resign and permit a caretaker administration to assume power.

The BNP announced a 48-hour nationwide general strike to be held on Saturday in protest of the general election scheduled for January 7 and to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s “illegal government”.
