"After a dramatic day of election, and loud accusations of cheating, see the ruling party in Bangladesh to have won a landslide victory. Despite the fact that the government had promised free and fair elections, pointing to the result of the opposite, according to an expert on South asia."
"People in Bangladesh testify to how they were prevented to vote, and observers were stopped from entering the röstlokaler. High speed internet connections shut down, and an independent tv channel went out. Seventeen people are reported to have died during the day of the election, after a bloody electoral campaign that has already claimed the life."
"the Election commission in Bangladesh says it investigating allegations of electoral fraud, at the same time as the early results indicate an overwhelming victory for prime minister Sheikh Hasina and Awamiförbundet."
" As I see it, the result is a major setback for democracy in the country. Unfortunately, the people have not received their desire for a free and fair election fulfilled, saying Asheque Haque, an expert on South asia who works at the King's College in London."
"He points to mainly two factors that speak to the opposition's allegations of electoral fraud are not arrested out of the air."
"– Options in this part of the world is often violent, and this has been marked by drama. The extensive violence that is particularly directed against the opposition this time, and that the ruling party is reported to have scored over 90 per cent of the votes in the areas where the opposition previously received at least 20, speaking on the whole, to the choice riggats. It is very unfortunate, " says Haque."
"Prime minister Sheikh Hasina, which regained power in 2008, claims to have led the country to enormous progress, a work that now should be allowed to continue under her rule. But Asheque Haque believes that she this time may have bitten themselves in the foot."
" this election has been made under the new conditions; public access to the internet, social media and young voters, who have been demonstrating for basic rights, with the result that they were struck down with violence. This does not create confidence and trust in them. They may be looking for other methods – it is very frustrating for the country's future, " he says."
