Businessmen in Bangladesh who heaved a sigh of relief as voting finished on Sunday in the 10th parliamentary are on tenterhooks again.
The election took place amid considerable violence — more than 100 polling locations set up in schools were vandalized, police officials told WWD — and even before the election results came in late Monday, it was clear that the ruling Awami League, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, would be the winner. Out of 300 parliamentary seats that were being contested, 153 were already won before the election, uncontested, as the 18-party opposition alliance decided not to participate in the elections.
