Most competitive 25 constituencies

There are 25 seats that will be very competitive in the next parliamentary elections. Bangla Insider got this information after analyzing the ninth general elections of Bangladesh held in 2008. It has been found that Awami League, BNP and Jatiya Party candidates won by just 200 to 10,000 votes in at least 25 constituencies. That is why it is assumed that any of the political parties can win in these seats. The leading parties are fairly strong in these areas.

Awami League and BNP first contested in the 1979 elections. Although the elections were biased, Awami League won in 42 seats. In 1991, Awami League won 91 seats. Then in 1996, Awami League came to power after 21 years after the victory in 160 seats. In 2001, the Awami League got 56 seats. Awami League again came to power in 2008 through a landslide victory. After that, the Awami League government has fostered development throughout the country for last 10 years.

According to the Election Commission (EC) sources, schedule of eleven parliamentary elections will be announced any time after October 30. In the meantime, the Election Commission has completed the demarcation of 300 seats. The final list of polling stations has also been published. When the Election Commission is preparing for election, the political parties are busy estimating their possible attainments. Political parties are thoroughly examining their position in different seats. Bangla Insider analysis shows, in order to ensure the victory in those 25 constituencies, the candidates will face a lot of competition. Let’s have a look at those 25 competitive seats.
