Elections in the 2010sEdit

Ishaque Hossain Talukder died in October 2014. Gazi MM Amjad Hossain of the Awami League was elected unopposed in December after the Election Commission disqualified the only other candidate in the by-election scheduled for later that month.[7]

Ishaque Hossain Talukder was re-elected unopposed in the 2014 general election after opposition parties withdrew their candidacies in a boycott of the election.[8]
