The Awami League (AL) government has settled into a second term of office. The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), its main competitor, 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 fresh polls.

Social unrest will remain a feature in Bangladeshi politics, but The Economist Intelligence Unit expects security forces to prevent any marked deter-ioration in law-and-order. Factors that could lead to a rise in social unrest include unexpected food, power or water shortages and the war crimes tribunals, which were established in 2010 to prosecute those accused of com-mitting crimes against humanity during the 1971 war of secession with West Pakistan (now Pakistan).

Foreign policy will centre on the immediate neighbourhood, remaining focused on ties with regional powers India and China. Relations between the AL and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India have in the past been tense. India's 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.
