Sheikh Hasina has won a fourth term as Bangladesh’s Prime Minister in a disputed election, with her party securing a majority of parliamentary seats.

The main opposition boycotted the vote, alleging it was fraudulent. Hasina’s victory raises concerns about one-party rule, and the opposition’s call for an independent caretaker government was rejected.

The government’s crackdown on activists has drawn criticism, with accusations of political imprisonment.

Despite economic successes under Hasina’s leadership, challenges loom with the pandemic’s impact, rising inflation, and international scrutiny over human rights abuses.

As Hasina secures her place in history, questions arise about her successor. The future seems uncertain despite the clear election outcome.
