The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of the government. This will be expressed in a periodic and transparent election which shall be by equal suffrage and held by secret vote. Through this, the pace of socio-economic and human development of a country is accelerated alongside the strengthening of the democratic process and Bangladesh is not so far from this process of democracy. To sustain the democratic process of Bangladesh it was a challenge for the ruling Awami League to conduct the 11th parliamentary election under constitutional law because of the non-cooperation of the opposition. But Awami League overcame that challenges and it was a landslide win which was largely attributed to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s dynamic leadership, her humility and the people’s rejection of anti-liberation forces. Majority of the people of Bangladesh, with the spirit of liberation war, wanted to see “Sonar Bangla” a long-cherished dream of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and it was reflected in the results of election.
