Live updates on Bangladesh elections 2024: The Election Commission says Hasina wins 75% of seats.

After the opposition boycotted the elections as a “sham,” election officials announced on Monday that Bangladesh’s Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has won a fifth term in power, with her party securing three-quarters of seats in parliament. This news came after the opposition referred to the elections as a “sham.”

“The Awami League has won the election,” stated Moniruzzaman Talukder, a joint secretary of the Election Commission, a day after the opposition boycotted the poll. Initial figures suggested that only about forty percent of the population participated in the election.

Although Talukder said that Hasina’s party had won 223 seats, observers believe that Hasina’s actual authority over the 300 seats in parliament is even greater. This is because Hasina’s party received backing from other parliamentarians, including those from closely affiliated parties.

A representative from Illinois State University named Ali Riaz told the Associated Press that “this is a one-party parliament,” and he went on to say that “only the allies of the Awami League had the opportunity to participate.”

At the same time, a nation of 170 million people is getting ready for the 12th general election in Bangladesh.

“Despite the fact that she was subjected to political arrests, atrocities, and other breaches of human rights, Sheikh Hasina went ahead and declared her win in the Bangladesh elections. It is not possible to have elections without opposition; the referendum was the only possible option. “Muhammed Faisal, a user of X, stated that the international community will not acknowledge it as a legitimate election.”

An Election Commission spokesman told AFP in the early hours of Monday morning that Hasina’s ruling Awami League “has won the election.” This statement was made after a vote that earlier reports claimed had a meager turnout of approximately forty percent.

She has presided over a nation that has seen rapid economic growth despite having previously experienced chronic poverty. However, her government has been accused of massive human rights abuses and a brutal opponent crackdown.

Bangladesh Elections 2024: Hasina wins a huge majority as the opposition boycotts the election, calling it unfair.

After a violent campaign and a boycott by the main opposition party, Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina was able to win an overwhelming majority in the parliamentary election. This victory granted her and her Awami League a fourth consecutive term in office.

It has been claimed by television stations and networks of journalists across the country that the Awami League won 216 seats out of 299, despite the fact that the Election Commission has been tardy to release the results of the election that took place on Sunday. Independent candidates won 52 seats, while the Jatiya Party—the third-largest party in the nation—won 11 seats. In the late hours of Sunday night, the results for the remaining constituencies were still being added to the total.

The election was held in 299 of the 300 seats that are available in the parliament. After the passing of an independent candidate, the election was postponed in accordance with the legislation in one of the remaining seats.
