In Bangladesh, the general elections held in December were not free and fair. Various irregularities have been found in these elections, including voting ballots, anti-polling agents and general voters.
This comment was made by the US State Department's Human Rights Report in 2018.
According to the US State Department's Human Rights Report, according to the constitution the government system of parliamentary system is established in Bangladesh. But virtually all the powers are concentrated in the Prime Minister's Office. Awami League, led by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, won the third straight victory in the general election in December last year. But this election is not considered free and fair. Various irregularities have been found in these elections, including voting ballots, anti-polling agents and general voters.
This report says that during the election campaign many reliable candidates have found credible information about harassment, threats, controversial arrests and violence against them. As a result, it was not possible for many opposition candidates and their supporters to run election campaign independently. International observers were not allowed to participate in this election and observers' visas were not given within the stipulated time period. For the election monitoring, a total of 22 NGOs have been approved for 7 percent.
The US State Department says in December elections civil authorities imposed effective control over law enforcement agencies. It has been said in the report that the prosecutions of law enforcement agencies are not prosecuted throughout the country. The government has taken very few steps to prosecute the torture and murder of law enforcers.
The US State Department says there have been cases of human rights violations in some other cases in Bangladesh. These include the disappearance, murder, torture, unnecessary censorship, blocking the site, violation of peaceful assembly rights, etc.
