The Awami League (AL) government will continue to dominate parlia-mentary proceedings in 2015-19. The failure of the two main political parties to resolve their long-standing disagreement over the electoral process continues to pose risks to stability, albeit small ones.

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. Aside from the ongoing transport blockade and street protests organised by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), other factors that could lead to a rise in social unrest include unexpected shortages of food, power or water. Given that the BNP currently has no presence in parliament, the opposition party's continued use of hartals (mass strikes) to press its demands for electoral reform will ebb and flow in 2015-19.

Foreign policy will remain focused on ties with India and China. Relations between the AL and India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party have been tense in the past. Long-standing areas of disagreement, such as disputes over land borders and water sharing, are potential flashpoints in 2015-19. Ratification of a land-swap deal by the Indian government in 2015-19 is unlikely to lead to a significant improvement in relations between the two countries.
