How would Bangladesh's politics look in the next 2 years?
National politics is picking up at snail's pace. On the one hand, the Awami League and the opposition candidates of the ruling party have become prominent around the Union Parishad elections. On the other hand, BNP, BSD, and CPB have boycotted the president's dialogue on the formation of the Election Commission. What is the message being sent out about the upcoming national elections?
Are BNP, BSD, and CPB trying to compete against the dominance of Awami League? What is going to happen in the next 2 years? Which direction is the national politics of Bangladesh taking?
