Sheikh Hasina's ruling Awami League party and its allies had a big win in parliament, with the main opposition securing only seven seats, Election Commission secretary Helal Uddin Ahmed said.
Kamal Hossain, who led the Opposition alliance, alleged vote-rigging and poll manipulation. “We’ve had bad elections in the past but I must say that it is unprecedented how bad this particular election was. The minimum requirements of a free and fair election are absent,” he said, according to Reuters.
Elections took place for 299 out of 300 seats in Parliament. The total number of voters is 10.4 crore, but no figures for voter turnouts were available until press time Sunday night.
