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 5th 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. Recently, street protests have been sparked by verdicts reached by the country's war crimes tribunal. Supporters of those found guilty have demon-strated, while secular elements have demanded capital punishment. Social unrest could also be sparked by shortages of food, power or water in the forecast period.

Foreign policy will remain focused on strengthening economic and diplomatic 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. The leader of the BJP, Norendra Modi, has been quite 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.
