The Awami League (AL) government has settled into a second term of office. The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), its main rival, will continue to challenge the outcome of the January 2014 parliamentary election, which it boycotted, but the AL is likely to resist pressure to hold fresh polls.

Social unrest will remain a feature of Bangladeshi politics, but The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the security forces to prevent any marked deterioration in law and order. Factors that could lead to a rise in social unrest include unexpected shortages of food, power or water, and also the BNP's frequent use of hartals (mass strikes) to press its demands for electoral reform (owing to the fact that it has no presence in parliament at present).

Foreign policy will remain focused on ties with India and China. Relations between the AL and India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have in the past been tense. The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, has been vocal about his party's policy towards illegal Bangladeshis in India and has threatened to introduce a deportation programme.
