Bangladesh election: Sheikh Hasina wins new term as prime minister

 

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has secured her third consecutive term with a landslide victory, Bangladesh’s Election Commission said on Monday.

Ms Hasina’s ruling party has so far won 281 of the 350 parliamentary seats, surpassing its previous election wins.

The opposition has condemned what it called a “farcical” election, marred by violence and claims of intimidation and vote rigging.

They won just seven seats and have demanded a new vote.

“We urge the election commission to void this farcical result immediately,” opposition leader Kamal Hossain said.
