Bangladeshi Prime Minister seeks people’s support

Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who won a third straight term with an overwhelming majority in last month’s election, sought the people’s support at a victory rally Saturday amid international calls for an investigation into alleged irregularities during the polls.

The opposition is demanding a new election, saying the Dec 30 polls were rigged, an allegation the Election Commission and Hasina have rejected. On Saturday, Hasina told tens of thousands of her supporters in a park in Dhaka, the capital, that she would “work for all” amid criticism that she could become increasingly authoritarian. (AP)
