The Awami League (AL) government has settled into a second term of office. The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), the second-largest political party, will continue to challenge the outcome of the January 2014 parliamentary election, which it boycotted, but the AL is likely to resist attempts to hold a second poll.

Social unrest will remain a feature of the political scene in Bangladesh, but The Economist Intelligence Unit expects the security forces to maintain basic law and order. Factors that could lead to a rise in social unrest include unexpected shortages of food, power or water and the findings of the country's war crimes tribunal, which was set up in 2010 to prosecute those accused of committing crimes against humanity during the 1971 war of secession with West Pakistan (now Pakistan).

Foreign policy will remain focused on strengthening economic and diplo-matic ties with India and China. Relations between the AL and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which leads the new government in India, have in the past been tense. India's new prime minister and BJP leader, Narendra Modi, has been vocal about his party's policy towards illegal Bangladeshi immigrants residing in India and has threatened to introduce a mass deportation programme. Relations with India would be severely strained if Mr Modi went ahead with such a programme.
