Bangladesh’s Awami League party wins election

In Bangladesh’s parliamentary elections, the ruling Awami League (AL) party, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, secured a significant victory by winning 223 out of 298 seats, according to Chief Election Commissioner Kazi Habibul Awal. The AL party needed a simple majority of 151 seats out of the total 300 to form a government. Results from one constituency are pending, and polling in another was postponed due to the death of an independent candidate. Voter turnout was reported at 41.8 percent of eligible voters. The main opposition party, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), boycotted the polls. Over 260 candidates from the ruling AL party participated in the elections, held across more than 42,000 voting centers nationwide.
